Parental Involvement is the third pillar of the PCA experience. The primary purpose of Parental Involvement is to enhance the educational experience at PCA for students, teachers, and parents by encouraging and developing parent support as well as offering opportunities for fellowship within the school community.
Parent Participation Policy
Parent involvement is an essential part of a student’s education at Providence Christian Academy. A point system has been established whereby a parent may fulfill his/her annual parent participation requirements of a minimum of 24 points (12 per semester). Both parents are required to fulfill point requirements and log them online separately. Please be aware that some activities are mandatory and the remaining hours can be made up of any activities. Other activities and their respective point values are listed for you to choose from to fulfill your remaining requirements. Volunteer service hours should be recorded on the individual parent portal through RenWeb.
Please note that ANY time you are volunteering, providing assistance to PCA, or attending a PCA event may be recorded as participation.
Observation must be completed and recorded in individual parent portal on RenWeb by:
December 8, 2023 for 1st Semester
May 3, 2024 for 2nd Semester
