Parents & Families 

Let Your Student Shine

Choosing the right college very often is a family decision. We know as parents you’re heavily invested on the college community your student joins, beyond financially. You want them to be supported, inspired, safe and empowered to bring their talents to the world. So do we.
 

Join Our Legacy

We place a heightened emphasis on letting parents get involved with our community. One way you can do just that is by joining PBA’s Parent Council. As part of the Parent Council, you’ll strive to provide effective parent-university interaction through events and services, as well as publications. And you’ll meet like minded parents who want to help create the best possible experience for parents of PBA students. 
 

Be Part of the Energy

PBA offers a college experience most schools simply can’t match. As a parent of a PBA student, you’ll see what we mean. From Welcome Week and Family Weekend to Commencement and other activities and events throughout the year, we believe that by welcoming parents and other family members of our students into our vibrant, Christ-first community, we all grow in mind, spirit and faith. Here are some next steps:
 

Supported and Safe

We know that nothing is more important to you than the safety of your student. That’s the most important thing to us, too. We invest extensive resources to ensure that every PBA student has the support they need, and will live and learn in the safest environment possible. We employ nearly a dozen safety and security officers who patrol campus—on foot, on bicycles and via marked vehicles—24 hours a day, seven days a week. And you’ll find 22 emergency call boxes strategically located across all areas of campus. Learn more about Campus safety & Security
