About Us

  Our PTA serves every student attending the Brickell Academy for Advanced Academics and Arts at Old Donation School in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This includes    the   full-time academic program for gifted learners (grades 2-8), the gifted dance program (grades 3-8), and the gifted visual arts program for the elementary grad es (grades 2-5). 

 We are part of the National PTA®, a nonprofit association comprised of millions of families, students, teachers, administrators, and business and community  leaders. Together, we support educational success, and promote parent involvement in our school. 

Our PTA supports the dynamic and challenging curriculum of Brickell Academy with financial support, grant programs, scholarships, and organized volunteer efforts. We strive to support every grade level, with age-appropriate and interesting opportunities. And fun is not forgotten! With your help, we organize after-school clubs, game days, spirit nights, fun runs, chess competitions, art contests, and staff appreciation events.  Please join.

MONTHLY PTA MEETINGS: During the 2022-2023 school year the PTA will meet monthly on the third Friday at 12 pm.  Meetings will be streamed over Zoom.  If you would like a zoom link please email Brickellacademyptasecretary@gmail.com.
