Dear Columbus Academy Families, Friends and Alumni,
Each school year, the Parents’ Association of Columbus Academy (PACA) publishes three sports programs and one arts program. Given the unprecedented circumstances and challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has presented, our usual schedule for inquiring about your business advertising in our arts and sports publications was put on hold as we waited on the status of competitions for our fall sports teams. Despite this pause in our usual efforts, we have decided to proceed with the publishing of a fall sports program and an arts program for the 2020-21 school year.
The sports program contains Academy sports information and history, seasonal pictures of our sports teams and advertisements of businesses that support our student-athletes and our community. Separately, the arts publication highlights our performing arts (band, choir, orchestra and theatre) programs from all three divisions.
This year’s publications will be printed for the students and families involved with the sports teams and performing arts groups. They will also be made available digitally to the entire Academy community, reaching more than 800 current families and 4,000 alumni, with a copy also being sent to each sponsor. The fall sports program will be available in early October, and the arts program this winter. Our intent is to produce winter and spring sports programs with a final decision made to closer to their respective seasons.
The advertising opportunities include full-page color ads on the inside front and back covers (3), full-page color centerspread ads (2), as well as full-page, half-page and quarter-page black and white ads. For more details on pricing and specs for each size, please refer to the rate sheet. If your business would like to consider supporting our sports and arts programs, please contact Wayne Armour, PACA sports and arts program chair, at or simply reply to this email.
All artwork for the ads should be in PDF or JPG format and should be sent by Monday, September 14, to Academy’s communications coordinator, Jeremy Morgan, at Please specify in the email as to the size of the ad you would like to purchase.
Thank you for your time, and go Vikes!
