Parent Association

French Sector

WHO WE ARE

The primary mission of the Parents Association of Villa Maria (APVM) is to help promote quality of life at the school. We work with the administrators, teachers, support staff, and students of Villa Maria. All parents of students in the French Sector are APVM members. The executive board members are elected by the parents at the beginning of each school year.

HOW WE ARE FINANCED

We are financed by the voluntary $25 per family membership fee.

The fees paid to APVM at the start of the year fund various projects at the school over the course of the year. Total contributions from parents add up to an approximate amount of $15,000, a sum entirely dedicated to the benefit of students.
