Benedictine College Parent Association

Every Raven parent is automatically a member of the Benedictine College Parent Association (BCPA). Your ideas and involvement are encouraged and welcomed!

Mission Statement

Join us in supporting the mission of the BCPA, which is to:

  1. Advance the mission and raise awareness of Benedictine College.
  2. Support Benedictine College parents.
  3. Promote hospitality within the Benedictine community.

Leadership

The BCPA seeks interested parents to serve on our Leadership Team.

Our Leadership Team includes:

  • Linda Henry, Vice President of Student Life
  • Megan Fassero, Parent Outreach Coordinator (mom of Julia ’21)
  • Stacey White, BCPA President (mom of Zach ’23)
  • Corinne Murphy, BCPA Newsletter Editor (mom of Grace ’24)

Connect

A central goal of the BCPA is to foster connections for Raven parents:

  1. With other parents

    Join our BCPA parent email platform at groups.io. The purpose of the group is to provide a platform for parents to network with one another, ask questions, provide answers, share prayer requests, and support the efforts of the BCPA.
  2. With students seeking careers and mentorship

    Make connections on Benedictine’s career networking and mentorship platform, The Raven Walk.
  3. With prospective student families in your local area

    If you’d like to host an admission event or a summer send-off event for new incoming students, please contact Stacey White for more information
