Volunteering

Volunteering your time and talents at Arma Dei is one important way you can directly impact the community and your student(s). See all the different volunteer opportunities we have below! 

In order to volunteer at the school, each parent is required to annually submit a background check and application through our security software, Raptor. This allows us to add to our continued student safety efforts and helps us know which areas interest a parent.

How do I apply?
As part of the back-to-school paperwork process, we included a link to the Raptor volunteer application. Both parents, if they wish to volunteer at any level, need to complete this application. If you did not complete the application while submitting your back-to-school forms, you may click on the Volunteer Application below. 

If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact the Parent Volunteer Coordinator. We look forward to partnering with you!

Arma Dei has a rich history of Dad’s events! Since the beginning, dads have been invited to spend time with their kids and volunteer in amazing ways! Past Dads events have included Dads Grill Day, Valentine’s Breakfasts, and Service/Work Days.

If you have been at Arma Dei Academy for at least one year, and have a passion for Classical Christian Education and our community’s culture, you might be a perfect fit for the role of Room Mom.

How would you help?
Starting before the school year, you set up a playdate and start connecting with your class’ families! You will also coordinate several Mom’s Night’s Out and out-of-school events during the year and assist with any family emergency needs (Meal Train, ride coordination to school, etc). You also meet with your teacher(s) regarding any classroom needs and remind your class families of ways to bless their teacher for their birthday and at Christmas.

You will receive an email or phone call from the Parent Volunteer Coordinator regarding your involvement for the following school year.

Classroom helpers are incredibly important since there are many needs that arise during the year! Your Room Mom(s) meet regularly with their assigned teacher(s) in order to make sure these needs are communicated to the parents. How would you help?

We are blessed with two buildings and two dining halls! That means that we greatly appreciate any help you would be willing to give us during the year in either building.

activities.

How would you help?
While on a field trip, or while off campus, our students are under the care of both teachers AND parents. You would drive them in your own vehicle (or maybe a rented van), keep an ‘Arma Dei Academy’ eye on them during the trip, and return them safe and sound to school.
