Academy Parents

Welcome Academy Parents

Parents are the backbone of Shrine Schools. Dedication to your kids, their education and Catholic faith is why our community continues to grow and prosper.


Grades 7 and 8 can be difficult years for kids to adjust. They moved on from Grade School and are now put in the position of being more responsible for their actions and education. They are on the verge of being young adults. Your involvement in these transformational years will help them find the support they need and the guidance they deserve.

Our Mother’s Club and Dad’s Clubs, along with other volunteer opportunities, help you be involved with the school and activities as well as fulfill the 15 hour parent service hour requirement. We hope you will find volunteering in any capacity a rewarding experience.
