The Archbishop Mitty Parent Association (AMPA) brings parents together in support of the school and the greater community through social events and service opportunities. Volunteer or attend an upcoming AMPA event and experience first hand the many benefits of becoming involved in the Mitty community!


  • to strengthen and support the Mitty community by providing opportunities for parents to work together and socialize
  • to provide opportunities for volunteerism among parents
  • to provide service and financial support that enhance student programs


There is no need to sign up to be part of the parent association.  By nature of having a student enrolled at Mitty, all Mitty parents are automatically considered AMPA members.

Spring Social

A casual, parents-only evening event. Venues and themes vary from year to year. Always a great opportunity to enjoy a fun night out in the company of other Mitty parents.

 Mitty Auction

The only AMPA fundraiser of the year, the auction is held in spring, and is always a highly anticipated event.  Proceeds benefit the scholarship fund.

Father-son Mass and Baseball Game

Mitty students and dads, celebrate mass, then enjoy lunch, convenient bus transportation, and a San Francisco Giants game. This event is held in late spring.  

Parent Volunteering

Over 600 parents annually provide vital support to Mitty through volunteerism. AMPA activities that rely on such support are the annual Mitty Auction, Athletic Programs, Performing Arts, Mailings, Parent Support, Administration Support and the events. Most volunteer activities take place after work hours. Volunteering might only take a few hours of your time, but is critical to the school, and is a great way to network with other parents, learn about your student’s environment, and share in the many traditions that make Mitty so unique and special.

Faculty/Staff Partnership Program

Please help make our faculty/staff appreciation program a continued success by dropping off those sporting event tickets, theater tickets, gift certificates or vacation home vouchers that you are unable to use. All donations are tax-deductible. It is a wonderful and deeply appreciated way to recognize the enthusiasm and excitement of the phenomenal Mitty faculty and staff. You may also drop off your donation at the Main Office in care of Mary Ann Prescott.
