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 firsthand 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 having a student enrolled at Mitty, every Mitty parent is automatically considered an AMPA member.

AMPA Leadership

The AMPA Leadership is composed of nominated volunteer leaders who serve as liaisons to the AMHS parent community as well as spearhead, lead and volunteer for various AMPA and AMHS sponsored events and programs. Each leader serves on one or more of the following committees: Athletic Program Support, Performing Arts Program Support, Hospitality, Mailing, Social Events, and Auction. Each grade level is also led by two Class Representatives, who organize and lead social activities for parents and caregivers to help build a strong parent community and encourage parent participation/volunteering at school and AMPA events. In addition, AMPA is led by a core group of parent volunteers:

Parent Volunteering

Over 600 parents annually provide vital support to Mitty through volunteerism. Nearly every AMHS event and student program is supported in some capacity by volunteers. 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.
