About

Parents & Teachers Association

The PAT is the Jackson Prep parent and teacher organization that serves as a vital support group for the school.  The Parent and Teacher Association at Jackson Prep was formed to bring a closer relationship between the home and school so that parents and teachers can collaborate effectively in the education and training of students.  The PAT’s annual fundraiser, Prep Fest, raises money for numerous classroom and campus enhancements as well as the school’s teacher endowment fund.  All Prep parents are automatically members of the PAT.
