The Parent Teacher Organization at Southern Wake Academy maintains a close working relationship between parents, teachers, staff, and students. It is our goal to enhance the educational experience by supporting the students and teachers through fundraising efforts to provide additional equipment, services, and special projects.

A strong PTO is only possible with parental interest and ensures a better school environment for our students attending SWA. The PTO holds monthly meetings to discuss and implement the ideas of the parents and teachers. Meeting attendance and involvement in the PTO count toward your parental volunteer commitment.
