Parent Participation Program
"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 Classical 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 30 hours of service time over the course of the school year. This is an excellent opportunity to become involved in your child(ren)’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 school office, indicating areas of interest for serving within the school community, as well as attending a mandatory Parent Participation Workshop. The school office will provide a contact list for each category to the parent participation manager, who will in turn contact parents to ask for their involvement. Parents are asked to follow up as required throughout the year.
The parent participation fee is included in your tuition payment. Upon completion of all 30 hours of service, you will receive a $500.00 deduction from your remaining tuition balance.
*Please note that parents who are on the tuition assistance program must complete a minimum of 30 hours of volunteer service and no monetary deduction will be awarded for hours completed.
In order to serve, the parent, grandparent, sibling (19 or older) will require a criminal record check. Please check with the school office if you have any questions or require a Criminal Record check request form. Parents serving as drivers must provide the school office with a copy of current vehicle insurance including proof of $2 million liability insurance, and a copy of a valid class 5 driver’s license.
