Stratford Interested Parents

SIP is our Stratford Volunteer Parent Organization. Its purpose is to enhance each student’s school experience and to support the school’s faculty and administration through a variety of planned events during the school year. Participation is open to all interested parents or guardians of students enrolled at Stratford Academy.

SIP provides the volunteers and funds for many activities throughout the school year. Some of these fun events are: Tailgate Parties, Daddies’/Special Friends’ Breakfast, Field Days, Middle and Upper School Dances, Faculty Appreciation Breakfast, Open Houses, and the Uniform Closet Resale.

In order to ensure that all SIP events are a success, it takes a large number of volunteers! Hundreds of parents are needed at the various events throughout the year to guarantee our students, faculty and families are afforded the best school experience possible! Want to learn how you can join SIP? Contact SIP Liason Callie Clay at callie.clay@stratford.org.
