Friends of Princeton Charter School is the school's parent-teacher organization formed to support the needs of PCS. All parents and teachers in the school community are members of Friends and we genuinely welcome your input and hope that you get involved.

Monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month. Location is the Marsee Center at 8:15 am, with refreshments starting at 8:00 am. Meetings generally last less than one hour.

Friends of PCS organize many fun and and community-building events throughout the year, and provide services that help the school. Friends of PCS also provides funds every year as requested by the school, to be used where needed, from support for after school clubs, school trips and support for the Capital and Endowment Fund.  The school counts on substantial support from Friends raised at our Annual Spring Benefit.
