Long Trail Family Network

Long Trail Family Network

We are excited to introduce the Long Trail Family Network. The LTFN reflects the evolution of the LTPA in light of increased enrollment and our impressive geographic diversity.

The main purpose of the LTFN is parent socialization and support for students and faculty.

There are four main emphases:  Athletics; Arts; Academics & Student Experiences; and Advancement. Parents are invited to join the group(s) that most directly align with their interests. 


  • The LTS Family Network will be dynamic and flexible.
  • The Admissions Director and Director of Development will facilitate the network’s efforts.  The Communications Manager and Director of Student Life will be key professionals to support the LTFN efforts.
  • Groups  will meet as needed.
  • Each group should host 2-3 social gatherings per year.  
  • A Parent Leader will be appointed to each group.  The Parent Leader will be the liaison to LTS.
