What's Happening

EAPA Faculty & Staff Holiday Gift Program - Deadline Monday, December 11th

The EA Parent Association's Faculty & Staff Holiday Gift Program is an annual tradition that offers families the opportunity to show their appreciation for Elgin Academy's faculty and staff members during the holiday season. This program is optional. Families may support the faculty and staff any way they choose. Some families give traditional gifts, others use this program only, and some use a combination of both. Gifts will be accepted through Monday, December 11th. Late submissions cannot be accepted. Those who would like to participate must submit the online form prior to the deadline.

EA Parent Association is encouraging families to join them in showing their appreciation for Elgin Academy's dedicated Faculty and Staff and all that they do for our students. Your support is both meaningful and appreciated especially during the holiday season. Thank you for participating in the EAPA Holiday Gift Program. If you have any questions, please contact the EAPA at

About the EAPA

The primary objective of the Parent Association is to enrich our students' school experience through all of our families and to enhance the communication between parents, administration, faculty, staff, and the Board of Trustees.

All parents/guardians of Elgin Academy Students are automatically considered members of the EA Parent Association (EAPA), Athletic Boosters, and Patrons of the Arts. The Office of Development oversees and supports the EAPA in their activities, contributions, and fundraising activities.
