Dear CPA Families,

On behalf of your PTO Executive Board, welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at College Park Academy! We have been working to ensure a year filled with wonderful experiences for our children, to support academic excellence, and to offer opportunities for all of our parents to make a real and positive impact on our community.

Our PTO is involved in every aspect of the school, enjoying a true partnership with CPA administration and staff. The participation of every member of our PTO is vital to our success. We continue in our quest to find innovative ways to enhance the experience of our children and support our teachers. 

Every year, we welcome our new and returning families, excited to see the ways our organization grows and develops with your work, talent, and ideas. This year one of our major objectives continues to be growing our membership. Our goal is 100% participation by our CPA families.

This year’s PTO membership dues are a suggested $10 per family and optional donations are welcomed throughout the year. All you need to do is complete our membership form found here and payment can be made via PayPal or check (CPA PTO, c/o College Park Academy, 5751 Rivertech Court, Riverdale Park, MD 20737). 

After you become a member, we have other great opportunities for parents to get involved in the PTO.  We are recruiting at least two Parent Representatives per grade. The Parent Representative is a flexible position for any involved parent who would like to help facilitate communication and promote PTO activities. Please indicate your interest in serving on the PTO membership form or email the Executive Board at

PTO meetings will take place the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM beginning in October.  The monthly meetings may alternate between virtual and in person.

If you have any questions, comments, or ideas, please feel free to speak with any of the Executive Board members, or email us at

We look forward to working with you!

Best regards,

PTO Executive Board 

President: Jordan Patty
High School Vice President: Katrina Harris
Middle School Vice President: Jessica O’Roark
