    Parent/Family Organizations

    Capuchino’s many family groups support students, teachers, and programs. Now that your students are teens, reaching their independence and making their own decisions, they need just as much support, if not more. They still need YOU to be a part of their lives, just in a different way. Help us strengthen our Capuchino Community by joining one or more of our family groups. Detailed information about each of these parent organizations is available on the school website,, under the ‘Families’ tab, then click on ‘Parent/Guardian Organizations.’
