"Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord." Ephesians 6:4.
As a support and extension of the family unit, First Baptist Classical Academy considers the family to be of first importance to a child. God, through His Word, the Bible, indicates that the family is the most important human institution He designed, since He compares it to the relationship believers have with Christ and the Father. Therefore, at First Baptist Academy we are continually seeking ways to actively involve the parents, siblings, and grandparents of our students in the programs of the school.
Pursuant to this goal, families of First Baptist Classical Academy are asked to complete a minimum of 20 volunteer hours at the school during each school year. This is an excellent opportunity to become involved in your children’s education, in addition to helping to create a strong community.
Parents and guardians are asked to complete a Parent Participation Program Form each year and to file it with our Headmaster, indicating areas of interest for volunteering within the school community. The school office staff will provide a contact list for each category to the volunteer manager, who will in turn contact parents to ask for their involvement. Parents are asked to follow up as required throughout the year.
A deposit of $300 is held on file and returned to families upon the completion of all 20 hours. Please note that there will be no refund processed for partial completion of the assigned 20 hours.
In order to volunteer, the parent, grandparent, sibling (19 or older) will require a criminal check. Please check with the school office if you have any questions or require a Criminal Record check request form. Volunteer drivers must provide the school office with a copy of current vehicle insurance with proof of $2 million liability insurance, and a copy of a valid driver’s license.
