PARENT-FACULTY ASSOCIATION

Join Us

The Washington Latin Parent-Faculty Association is an organization devoted to supporting the education of all children at Latin and promoting the general welfare of the school. We accomplish this by helping to provide important information to parents, fostering close relationships between parents and faculty, and providing a forum for sharing ideas and building a strong, supportive community.

Our funding comes from the parents of Washington Latin through our Latin Pride annual campaign, which also provides important funding to the school to help close the budget gap and thus sustain the most important elements of Latin – small classes, excellent faculty, and a warm community. Please read more about Latin Pride!
