The Friar Family

When our daughter Meg made the decision to attend PC, we were eager to learn more about what makes the PC community so special. Now, as Meg gets ready to graduate, we can truly attest to the fact that Friar family is more than just a slogan.Dan Allen '19P, Theresa Allen '19P

Friar family is such an authentic way of talking about the PC community because each member embodies what it means to be part of a family. From the ever-present Dominican Friars to the friendly, helpful staff, to the renowned faculty, each individual is dedicated to making sure every student that passes through the Harkins gates has a memorable experience.

We invite you to enhance your role in our community through involvement with the Parents Leadership Council. You can meet fellow parents, be more connected to the PC community, and have a meaningful impact on your child’s second home. As a group, we can ensure that this special place that we love continues to the thrive and that our family continues to excel.

Thank you for your support and Go Friars!
Dan and Theresa Allen ’19P
Co-chairs, Parent Leadership Council
