2019 Annual Fund

Dear Parrott Academy Family,

Over the years, many of you have shared how much you treasure your Parrott Academy experience and how APA has helped shape your family’s life. We remain firmly rooted in a sense of family and the time-honored values of honor, initiative and truth. Your ongoing support enables students to continue to excel in the classroom, on the playing field and on the stage while still serving in their home communities.

As an independent school, Parrott Academy does not receive district, state or federal funding. Instead, we rely solely on tuition, fees and fundraising to maintain operational expenses. We insist on providing the best education while also keeping tuition costs reasonable and providing competitive salaries and professional development for our faculty. This ensures that students receive the highest level of classroom instruction.

In keeping with the vision of Mr. Marion Parrott, APA promises to provide academic excellence, state of the art facilities, superior options in the fine arts, competitive athletic programs and a variety of service opportunities for our student body. Each of these APA components are designed to meet the needs of the individual and to cultivate confident critical thinkers. As we continue our work with the students at APA, we feel a renewed appreciation for everything that makes this school so vibrant and successful. The ongoing commitment and involvement of our stakeholders contribute to the vitality of our school. Each year we build upon prior efforts as we continue to grow and nurture our students and the school.

Generous and consistent support of the Annual Fund by board members, alumni, parents, grandparents and friends allows Parrott Academy to maintain the highest quality educational experience possible for our students today and in the future. Your participation in this campaign helps ensure we remain one of the top independent schools in North Carolina. Please help us reach our goal of $80,000 by December 31, 2019. To contribute, please visit our website and select the Support APA tab to donate online or simply return the enclosed pledge card with payment. Remember, all pledges are tax deductible. Thank you for your continued support!
