CAPSA Committees

Cultural Committee: Helps organize our two main cultural events at the school for Diwali and Holi, along with additional smaller events. Work with teachers and students to educate the greater Academy community about how we celebrate these special holidays with various meaningful traditions like dances and presentations. Diwali is presented by division during assemblies, while Holi is a larger schoolwide event. 

School Support Committee: Helps support PACA events and school service opportunities including, but not limited to, Kids 4 Kids Food & Clothing Drive, volunteering at the Viking Corner (school spiritwear store), admissions events for new families and supporting Desi Club events in the Middle and Upper School.

Service Committee: Volunteer your time, expertise and skills to support children in all divisions. These include, but are not limited to, professional speakers, assisting teachers in special classes such as art, music and PE/wellness.
