Welcome to Your PTO!


Welcome to Your PTO!

The Charter Oak International Academy Parent­ Teacher Organization (PTO) is a volunteer organization dedicated to making COIA the best place it can be. All families, caregivers, teachers and administrators are welcome. We encourage you to become an active member of the PTO and the Charter Oak Community by volunteering your time during or after school or making supply or financial donations of support. All families are automatically members of the PTO. We don't charge dues. Instead, we hope you can make a commitment to the COIA community and most importantly our kids. Whether it’s an hour every few months or at every event, whatever you give will make a BIG difference to your child’s school.
