A Pre-Kindergarten - Grade 12 co-educational independent day school in Westchester County, New York

Parents Association

The Rye Country Day School Parents Association (the "PA") is a parent-governed organization representing parents and guardians of Rye Country Day School students. The PA is headed by an Executive Committee, which oversees and supports the work of division coordinators, grade liaisons, committee chairs, and other volunteers. 

The PA's overall mission is to help foster a sense of community among our parents and guardians while working in partnership with the School for the benefit of the whole community. Specifically, the PA strives to:

  • build a warm and welcoming community among parents/guardians;
  • facilitate communication between parents/guardians and the School; and
  • support and raise funds for vital School programming, scholarships, enrichment activities, and PA-sponsored events.

Greetings from the Parents Association President

The PA is committed to building an active, engaged, and cohesive parent community that is supported by a strong parent-school partnership. With a variety of leadership positions and over 20 parent-led committees, the PA is an important part of the RCDS community with volunteer opportunities that impact all aspects of life at RCDS, including admissions, athletics, communications, fundraising, school spirit, and signature programs.
I would like to invite you to get involved with the PA and help us continue our long-standing tradition of strong parent engagement. Whether you are able to chair a committee, volunteer, or simply attend our events, your participation is not only welcomed but deeply valued, as it plays a pivotal role in enhancing our children’s educational experience and strengthening our  community. Please read below for more information about PA leadership positions and volunteer opportunities. I look forward to working with you to support our outstanding community.
