BC Christian Academy is known for its warm and caring environment where parents of our students are actively engaged and supportive of our mission. This has a profound effect on our students’ success. When parents get involved and show interest in their child’s school and education, not only do students perform better, but it also sends a positive message that there is a strong partnership between families and BCCA in our vision of equipping our children to impact the world for Christ.
In 2010, BC Christian Academy implemented its first Parent Participation Program (PPP). The philosophy around the development of the PPP was to assist in developing a stronger Christian community, as well as reduce the financial constraints on the school through rallying our families to volunteer in the school. Each family commits to volunteering a set number of hours each year, as set by the Board of Directors.
The program has proven to be very successful. Families have found that through volunteer work, they have come to understand the heart of the school better while making new, long-lasting relationships.
As we consider the new realities of COVID19, our guiding principle is the health and safety of everyone in our school community. Since Sept 2020, Safety COVID-19 measures have been implemented and required for anyone who wants to volunteer such as wearing masks and health checks. Furthermore, all volunteers are required to complete a criminal record check. Please click on our BCCA Website Parent Portal to access and complete the New E-CRC form.
This school year 2021-22, please be informed that the fulfillment of PPP hours is once again required among all school families. Each family is required to complete 20 hours of volunteer work–10 hours by Jan 31st and the other 10 hours by June 30th. Parents must take individual responsibility for signing up for a PPP opportunity of their choice, and for ensuring that they track and accumulate the 10-hour minimum requirement per semester.
Thank you in advance for your support and help this school year!
