Parents of Alumni Association


The Germantown Academy Parents of Alumni Association's Mission is to help parents of alumni remain connected to GA, and one another, following the graduation of their children.

In the 2017-18 year, the GA Parents of Alumni Association Advisory Council continues in its seventh year of orchestrating social events and career networking opportunities for various members of the community. The group keeps in mind its formal mission and goals listed above in all activities.

Additionally, the group's goals are:

  • Present social, educational and cultural events and opportunities for parents of alumni
  • Increase awareness of new GA initiatives and programs
  • Foster participation in activities presented by the GA Alumni Office/Office of Institutional Advancement and the Parents Committee
  • Support college and career networking efforts for alumni
  • Encourage continued involvement and support of the academy by other parents of alumni and young alumni in order to maintain the continuum of the GA connection
  • Overall, to reinforce the notion of GA as a life-long resource for its alumni and their parents
