Parent Service Organization

Parents who participate in PSO projects and events will experience first-hand programs that enrich their children’s lives and promote their development.

The Cincinnati Classical Academy Parent Service Organization (PSO), is a nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation, organized exclusively to support the mission and activities of Cincinnati Classical Academy through volunteer, fundraising and other supportive activities.

The PSO is led by its Officers and Committee Chairs who focus on creating and enhancing learning and enrichment opportunities for Classical students in the areas of Athletics, Arts and Community & Culture. Select members of the school’s administration serve as non-voting members.

Any parent, guardian, or other adult legally recognized in loco parentis for a student enrolled at Cincinnati Classical Academy in good standing is automatically a member of the PSO. Full members meet at the PSO Annual Meeting each May but work together regularly with Committee Chairs throughout the course of the year through volunteer and fundraising initiatives.

Details on PSO activities and opportunities are shared regularly through the school’s weekly electronic newsletter. Parents and guardians of Cincinnati Classical students are also encouraged to follow our PSO Facebook page. Specific questions for the PSO can also be emailed to
