Advisory Council

  • The Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School Advisory Council is comprised of representatives from each Catholic parish in the Montgomery Metro area (as chosen by the pastor), together with one representative each from our St. Bede, Holy Spirit, Middle School, and High School Campuses. The Advisory Council is responsible for working with school administration to develop the policies for our school.

    The episcopal vicar, or his appointment, is an ex-officio non-voting member of the council. The school president is a non-voting member.

    Meetings are held eleven times a year, usually on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, excluding July.  Parents wishing to speak with Advisory Council members are welcome to do so.
