At Excel Academy, we understand that it takes a village to educate a child. Excel's Parent Teacher Organization includes the partnership of Excel Academy Staff, Families, Community Organizations/Local Businesses, and School Partners. Each person who joins Excel Academy's PTO strengthens the Excel Academy community. Family members are needed to chaperone field trips, help with Excel Academy events, share their talents, and celebrate student successes. 


We welcome all parents of Excel scholars to participate in our Parent Teacher Organization. Meetings are held in the Excel Academy PCS Auditorium. For questions, please contact the PTO at
