Who We Are

The IPA Parent-Teacher Association (IPAPA) is a network of committed parents who come together to support the greater mission of ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY.

We exist to drive engagement amongst the parent community, demonstrating presence and character and pooling our diverse resources to enhance our children's educational experience.

Our vision is to become the strongest, most engaged parent community who, without hesitation, shows up to support the administration's efforts in providing the richest learning environment for ISLAND PACIFIC ACADEMY students.
