A Catholic, college-preparatory school, grades 7-12
Parent Association


As a parent/guardian of a Benilde-St. Margaret’s student, you are touched by the Parent Association on a weekly basis. It is the teachers and staff who provide an amazing place for students to learn and grow, and it is the Parent Association, made up of many parent volunteers, that provides the touch points. From social activities, events, parenting and faith speakers to fundraisers and student wellness and prayer opportunities – just to name a few – Parent Association experiences help our community thrive.

Faith & Wellness Opportunities

Parent Ambassadors

As a Parent Ambassador, current parents serve as a vital resource for new families joining the BSM community. A Parent Ambassador is the first contact many new parents have to BSM. Each volunteer will be assigned 2-3 families with matching grade levels. They will reach out to the new family in the summer and continue to offer support and answer questions into the fall. Parent Ambassadors are encouraged to attend the Junior High New Parent Picnic or the Freshman/Sr. High Transfer Family Picnic, whichever is appropriate.

There will be a link requesting volunteers posted in the spring.

Join other Junior High parents in planning, sponsoring and supporting a variety of social opportunities and events for your students. Follow link for meeting dates.

Each year many teachers, coaches and school staff are nominated for this special recognition. Please click on the link to nominate your favorite.
