Lions Parent Association

The Lions Parent Association (LPA) actively supports the mission of the school by providing opportunities to connect and cultivate relationships, promoting volunteerism and school spirit, and raising awareness of Westminster Academy in the local community.

The LPA serves as the primary means of parental involvement and works to strengthen the home and school link. The LPA is organized in a way to provide flexibility and sharing of responsibilities in order to maximize parental involvement as a key element of school culture.  Opportunities afford a wide range and vary with regard to interest, skill, and time.
