Current Parent Volunteer Opportunities

Riverside Association of Parents - Committees


The purpose of the RMA Parent Association is to promote parental involvement in the school by supporting the RMA mission, leadership, programs and activities for the well-being of the cadets.  The RMA Parents Association strives to promote a strong sense of community by recognizing that its economic, cultural and ethnic diversity enrich this sense of community through the variety of talents, resources and backgrounds each family brings to the school.


All parents and guardians of cadets enrolled at RMA and parents of alumnae who express continued interest in the school are automatically members of the PA. There are no membership fees.


Leadership positions are appointed to serve a one year renewable term and will be expected to meet as a group on a monthly basis. Individual chairs and their committees will meet on a quarterly basis as a minimum and more as needed. All leadership positions require a minimum of one full academic year of attendance at RMA. Although only one leadership role can be held at a time, you may serve on multiple committees at a time.
