The R-MA Parents' Association raises funds that directly benefit the students of Randolph-Macon Academy.

The Randolph-Macon Parents’ Association (R-MA PA) is a group of parent volunteers with the mission to enrich our sons and daughters high school experience by: offering teacher grants, organizing informal meetings with administrators, hosting events for guest speakers, enhancing the social events scheduled by the school and making ourselves available to chaperone, decorate, and/or run concession stands.  The PA is a group of folks always ready to help.

A primary goal of the Randolph-Macon Parents' Association is to bring R-MA parents into an active role in students' academic and non-academic activities and to help establish a strong relationship between student families and the school. To accomplish this goal, the PA provides numerous opportunities for parents to involve themselves with the school. With this interaction, parents develop a strong relationship with the administration, faculty, and students and the positive feeling associated with participating in the students’ education.

The R-MA Parents’ Association provides a convenient framework for parents to integrate into the school community through communication, collaboration, parent education and volunteer opportunities.

The PA is open to all parents and guardians R-MA students without dues or fees. All meetings of the PA, the PA Officers, and all PA committees are open to parents and guardians without exception. PA meetings usually take place on the third Sunday evening of each month. 

Officer meetings are scheduled by the PA President and the meeting information is available in the daily announcements sent out by the school.  Please join our meetings.  We need your thoughts and efforts and any donation.  If you are coming into the area for just a short visit and have the time, contact one of the officers listed below. You’ll find the R-MA PA a positive way to contribute to the Academy’s commitment to the individual growth, personal development, and welfare of each student.

Opportunities for participation and a listing of events will generally be on our calendar (coming soon!) and the PA Corner of R-MA daily announcements.
