Because we believe that the Crystal experience includes the parents and guardians of our students, we have created many opportunities for them to get involved and engaged with the Crystal community.
All parents and guardians are members of the Crystal Family Association (CFA) whose mission is to build a strong and inclusive community at Crystal. The CFA connects parents and guardians by hosting events throughout the year, organizing community service opportunities, and promoting parent education series.
In addition to the CFA, parents and guardians may also join the Gryphon Club or the Arts Collective. The Gryphon Club builds school spirit by supporting Crystal athletes, promoting Crystal gear and organizing for the annual athletics banquet and golf tournament. The Arts Collective provides support to the various arts performances, concerts and the annual Arts Festival.
As do most independent schools, Crystal relies on the generous investment of volunteer time and financial resources from our families. The Crystal Fund
, Crystal’s annual giving program, helps bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each student. The CFA hosts the Gryphon Gala
event to raise funds to support the Faculty Recruitment and Retention Fund and the Financial Aid Fund.
