Becoming an Admiral Family

The strength of the Severn community comes not just from students, but from the families as well. So when your child enrolls, you become Admirals too!

Admiral Families in Action

Families are an integral part of the Severn School community. Once you are Admirals, you can expect a warm welcome to our active parent network. Additionally, all enrolled families automatically receive membership in our Admirals Parents' Association, with no membership fee. The APA hosts events, programs and parent gatherings, and organizes volunteer opportunities throughout the school year.

The Admirals Parents' Association

The Admirals Parents’ Association (APA) is dedicated to supporting the students, faculty and administration of Severn School. We strive to offer a variety of opportunities for parents to feel welcomed, informed, involved, and connected. You can learn about events and volunteer opportunities through the The Binnacle, the APA Resource Board, and at parent gatherings and meetings.

One of the premier events of the year that brings together parents from both the Chesapeake and Teel campuses is our annual Admiral Auction. Held in March each year, the auction is the one and only fundraiser that supports the programs of the APA and involves the entire parent community. In other instances, some of the work of the APA may be specific to campuses or grade levels. Regardless of the campus, every effort is made to inform and involve the entire Severn community from preschool through 12th grade.

  • Chesapeake Campus

    Home to our preschool through 5th graders, Chesapeake Campus parents are involved in both in-classroom activities and after-school events sponsored by the APA. Whether you enjoy being a room parent to directly help in your child’s classroom or prefer to be involved in after-school events such as the Fall Festival, Family Fun Night, Spring Dance, or Greens Workshop, the APA welcomes your ideas and time. In addition, parents serve as grade level representatives for each grade, taking on the responsibility of representing your class parents to the APA.
  • Teel Campus

    On Teel Campus, which houses our middle and upper school students, parent involvement includes supporting programs to benefit our students and faculty as well as participating in parent community-building events. School supported events include an After-Prom party, Upper School Boardwalk Blast, Graduation reception, arts and music receptions, Middle School Social, MS Innovation Day, and more. Class Representatives serve as the liaisons between the parents in individual grades and the APA, and host numerous parent gatherings and social events to connect parents with each other.
