About the Parents' Association

Much has been said about the special nature of the Buckley community. The school's small size, communal belief in the tenets of The Buckley Commitment and Mission help connect families and students alike. The Buckley Parents’ Association (PA) brings together more than six hundred families to support the school. For more information or to get involved, please contact pa@buckley.org.

Events & Meetings

The PA works to build strong relationships between parents and the school. All families are welcome to become involved with association-led events, such as the annual Welcome Back Bash and Buckley Fair. PA involvement is varied and flexible to meet every schedule. Meetings are held alternately in the mornings and evenings throughout the school year and options to volunteer can be found on large or small committees. All funds raised by the PA are donated to the school to directly support Buckley programs.

The Parents' Association meets regularly throughout the school year. A schedule of meetings, as well as meeting minutes, can be found under the Parents' Association resource board on MyBUCKLEY.

Volunteer Opportunities

Parent volunteers set a strong example for our students. They spend thousands of hours taking on crucial tasks at Buckley — from planning the Lower School Book Fair, providing support to Upper School performers backstage, collecting used uniforms, and being part of our community engagement efforts through service work. In addition, the Buckley PA makes important contributions to the school’s operating and financial aid budgets through a variety of fundraising events each year, like, Party Book, Gala, and Fair. The PA has fulfilled a $500,000 pledge for the first phase of the Dare to be More campaign and is in the midst of fulfilling the first $1 million pledge to the second phase of that campaign.

Nearly New Uniforms

Throughout the year, families have opportunities at big events to purchase Buckley-branded merchandise and Nearly New Uniforms. The NNU proceeds go toward our financial aid program, as do our fundraising efforts throughout the year. All items are sold for $5.
