Parents' Association

University School of Milwaukee’s Parents’ Association (PA) exists to involve parents in activities that support the school community. Every parent is a member.

The PA is an organization umbrella under which parents collaborate and share their time and talents to enhance the USM experience for students, parents, and staff.

The PA
  • serves as the foundation for a cooperative and inclusive parent body and encourages the Common Trust tenets of respect, trust, honesty, fairness, and kindness; 
  • engages and mentors parents as volunteers and stewards of the School; 
  • provides financial support for the School’s programs and capital improvements; 
  • collaborates with faculty and administration on shared objectives; and 
  • represents the parent body and its viewpoints. 

Firmly rooted in a rich tradition of involvement and support, the PA continually cultivates programs to best serve the needs of our ever-evolving School community.
