The Dominican Academy Parents’ Association (DAPA) works together with the administration, faculty, and staff of Dominican Academy to enhance our daughters’ high school experiences and support the school. We support school activities and academic achievements, encourage socializing for families and friends, raise funds and offer prayer in all we do. We encourage you to volunteer and stay involved with your daughter’s school.
Your participation enhances the value of your daughter’s time and your money spent at Dominican Academy. The ways you can participate are various. We are always looking for new ideas for events and donation solicitation. If you are unable to attend meetings please do not hesitate to communicate with us at: DAPA@dominicanacademy.org.

Parents’ Association meetings typically take place on the first Wednesday of the month (though always be sure to check the calendar!) at 7:00 P.M. Meetings are preceded by a wine-and-snack social at 6:30 P.M. Attending meetings affords you regular opportunities to hear about current and upcoming events and news in the school, as well as a forum in which you can share your interests, concerns, and new ideas with fellow parents and administration.
