RAPA (Parents' Association)
The organizational structure of RAPA consists of a RAPA President and a Vice President for each of the schools four divisions (Preschool, Lower School, Middle School and Upper School), a Secretary and Treasurer. All RAPA Board members work closely with the RA Head of School, Division Heads and other key administrators to bring issues to the attention of the school and learn about changes in policy, upcoming events and other issues that may impact the educational experience for our students. Additionally, RAPA has numerous event chairs and classroom representatives.
Selection of a new RAPA president takes place in the spring of each year. This year we welcome Liz Smolenack as our RAPA President. We invite anyone interested in joining RAPA at any level to get involved. Working with others can be enormously gratifying as well as you can learn more about Ridgefield Academy as a whole.
We encourage you to join us for our RAPA meetings. Your involvement in the life of our school is important to the success of our program!
