Parents Council

As PBA parents, your opinions, your ideas, and your concerns are our main priority. You are not only members of our family but also partners in the educational process.


This vision is the foundation of the Parents Council, an initiative that strives to provide effective parent-university interaction through consistent feedback with University leadership, as well as representing PBA at events and gatherings.

There are many ways to get involved in PBA life. Support your student with texts, phone calls, and in prayer, and be aware of the many student support services the University offers. Stay informed on Parent Council updates and events by signing up for the Parent Email Newsletter.
