Spartan Parent Ambassadors

Parent Ambassador Program

Bishop Stang High School has a very powerful story to tell. It is a story of faith, integrity, knowledge and service which focuses on every child’s holistic growth and well-being. It is a story of happy endings for students and parents, connected to a supportive community, long after their four years of high school are complete. 

As prospective families discern the critically important choice of where their child will attend high school, current family experience and insight may prove invaluable. We invite current Stang families to help us tell our story by sharing your experiences as a member of the Bishop Stang family.


For a list of Parent Ambassadors to help answer any Bishop Stang-related questions, see below based on your child's grade level, interests, and hometown.

Our Bishop Stang Parent Ambassador Program is designed to help current parents tell our story to prospective parents informing them about the benefits to consider regarding a Bishop Stang High School education. Our goal is to increase the number of students and families who visit us, submit an application and ultimately enroll. Maintaining a healthy enrollment creates a stronger school, increases our budget and enhances our curriculum and programs. It benefits everyone; our students, school, and community!

As a Parent Ambassador, here are some ways you could participate: 

- Community Outreach: Helping to coordinate opportunities to advertise, groups to speak to or connecting us to an event where students may be able to provide service at local schools, parishes or community events. 

- Admission Events Ambassador: Help us by attending Admissions Events and talking to prospective parents at our Open House or Accepted Student Events.

- Parent Contact: Schools are finding good success with posting the contact information of current parents on their school website as it provides an easy way for prospective parents to ask questions they may not want to ask the Admissions Office. We will post the contact information for a variety of parents (from different grades, regions and student activities/sports). Your job would be to field any parent perspective questions and pass along those you can’t answer to the Admissions Office. We especially need parents able to communicate with ELL families.

- Hosting prospective families: Invite friends or families interested in learning more about Bishop Stang to your home or a local community venue/event. We will attend with you and will provide talking points and appropriate marketing materials. Perhaps consider doing this after a Mass at your place of worship or setting up a table at another venue to share information, especially the weekend of October 7th.
