The Barringer PTA is made of more than just parents helping at the school. We are fathers and mothers, aunts and uncles, grandparents and friends of the students at Barringer. We volunteer in this environment for one reason only - to help enrich the lives of each and every student at Barringer Academic Center. We volunteer our time to make certain that every teacher and administrator have the support they need to do their primary task - educating the students. We want each and every child to know what the world we live in could be, when each and every individual gives their best in service to others.

All parents are encouraged to join the PTA ($6 annually for Individual Membership/ $12 annually for Family Membership) and actively participate in the committees and programs. Each member has voting rights on the budget as well as the Board members. Plus, every paid membership helps to fund all the wonderful programs the PTA helps provide for each and every student at Barringer.
  • To become a member of the BAC PTA, join online or submit a Membership Form and dues. (Forms may be submitted to a PTA representative at a PTA meeting/function or turned in to the school via your child's Thursday Folder.)
  • Please consult the calendar for dates of General Membership and Board Meetings.
  • Visit North Carolina PTA for additional PTA related information.

Our PTA relies on the time and talents of our teachers and families.
