OMI Parent Council Advisory Committee Mission Statement
The Oakland Military Institute's Parent Cadet Advisory (PCA) is a school-wide Committee that serves the entire body of Students, Parents, Military Staff, and Administration. The PCA promotes activities that enhance the enjoyment and well-being at OMI in a way that builds community throughout the school.
What is the PCA About?
The PCA invites and welcomes all Parents and Guardians of OMI cadets. We value and respect input from a wide spectrum of viewpoints. The PCA supports and encourages parents and public involvement at OMI. The PCA works on creating a welcoming and vibrant school community.
Benefits of Participating in PCA
By attending PCA meetings, you will get insight regarding school activities and networking with other parents. If you have questions regarding school norms, policies, discipline, and education the PCA will do its best to answer or direct you to someone that can.
Studies show that students with parents who are involved in their child’s education/school tend to have fewer behavioral problems and better academic performance and are more likely to complete high school. Positive effects of parental involvement have been demonstrated at both the elementary and secondary levels across several studies. A recent meta-analysis showed that parental involvement in school life was more strongly associated with high academic performance for middle and high school students than helping with homework.
PCA also has the honor of assisting cadets that have demonstrated academic excellence with College Scholarships to our seniors for the past two years. All of which the PCA could not have done with the help and support of all our amazing parents!
PCA is committed to acknowledging our amazing parents that do complete hours of service to OMI incentives as a show of appreciation.
Thank you in advance for your continued support throughout the 2017 – 2018 school year!
