When you serve as a parent volunteer, you enrich the educational experience and environment of every SMH student.
In addition, you learn who the faculty, staff, and volunteer leaders are, how the school operates, and how the mission of the school is carried out. Most importantly, volunteering is an expression of your interest in, and commitment to, your child’s education.
The Saint Mary’s Hall Parents’ Association is the biggest source of parent volunteers on our campus. Parents lend their time, expertise, and passion in a number of areas throughout each of the three divisions.
- Barons' Club
- Faculty & Staff Appreciation
- New Family Mentor Program
- Friends of the Fine Arts
Each year, SMH welcomes approximately 155 new students and their families to our community. Our New Family Mentor Program volunteers connect with new families via email or telephone to welcome and orient them to our school, and encourage them to reach out as questions arise.
When you join the New Family Mentor Program, you’ll meet a family new to SMH and become a valuable resource for them, providing instruction, input, and a friendly face as they set out on their journey as Saint Mary's Hall Barons!
Nearly every student participates in at least one of the programs offered in the Tobin Fine Arts School at Saint Mary’s Hall. Meet up with the Friends of the Fine Arts to become part of the arts scene at SMH, and learn how you can help support the Fine Arts Department. Help out in the box office, plan artist receptions, help hang artwork for exhibits, organize the dance production costumes, and more!
There are ample opportunities for you to volunteer your time helping as a room parent, in the library, and in many other places around the Lower School. As your student moves into Middle School, you can lead the parent and student community service group, and much more. In the Upper School, you can host international students, provide office coverage during lunch, and much more!

Parents’ Association is
