Welcome to the PFI!

Welcome Back to School!

Rebecca Preslar - PFI President

The new school year is almost upon us, and your Socrates Academy PFI is gearing up for another great year! Whether you are a new family or have been a part of Socrates Academy for many years, I’d like to extend a warm welcome and share a bit about what we have planned for this school year.

First of all, did you know all families at Socrates Academy are granted membership to the PFI? That means NO MEMBERSHIP DUES! We hold monthly board meetings open to all members. Our first meeting of the year is on Wednesday, September 5th, from 9:00-10:30 am, in the Language Lab.

We may also post Community Polls or other important updates in the weekly Socrates Connection emails. If you don’t currently receive those emails, sign-up here. The Connection is the prime way to stay informed about everything happening at our school. Take a moment each week to read the updates, and participate in the polls so YOUR voice is heard! Oh, and in case you didn’t know, our official name is “Socrates Academy Parent-Faculty Involvement Association”… but you’ll hear us referred to as “PFI” for short!

If you want to know more about the purpose and and goals of the PFI, visit

Here’s the short version of what we do:

  • We encourage parent involvement by creating volunteer opportunities for our families.

  • We support our Teachers, Leadership and Board of Directors.

  • We provide fun and inclusive activities for our scholars and their families to enhance a cohesive school community.

  • We provide financial support to Socrates Academy through fundraising activities.

  • We always ask the best question possible which is, “Is this good for our Scholars?”

That’s a little about us. Now we want to know more about you!

Take a moment to complete this short form, helping us connect you with the right team so you can start logging some volunteer hours (remember each family serves a minimum of 36 hours per year!). We would also like to to tell us what events you are interested in attending this year.

Thanks for being a part of the Socrates Academy PFI. I look forward to serving alongside you this year!
