To align resources with the vision and direction of the Board of Trustees of Mater Dei Prep to enrich the learning environment while empowering parents, teachers and students for success.

We will conduct ourselves with humble, positive attitudes to help develop a closer connection between school and home by encouraging parent involvement and to improve the environment at Mater Dei Prep through volunteer and financial support. The PTO will utilize our time, talent, and reserve to assist the school and sponsor events to  build upon and strengthen Mater Dei Prep High School.
