Get Involved

Philip’s Academy Charter School is full of talented students with bright smiles and big hearts. In providing a variety of role models for the children, we welcome volunteers to get involved and make a difference. No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted…

How Can You Help?

  • Guest Reading – Spend time in a lower school classroom sharing your favorite story
  • Guest Speaker Program – Speak to students about your career, school experience or special topic of interest
  • Mock Interviews for 8th Grade Placement – Help prepare our students for Secondary School interviews
  • After-school Tutoring – Work with students in reading, writing and math
  • After-school Sports Coaching – Assist the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams
  • Guest Chef – Share your favorite recipe with a class in our Teaching Kitchen (use fresh vegetables and fruits from our rooftop garden)
  • Gardener – Work with our students in planting and harvesting
  • Guest Judge – Use your knowledge and experience to judge Debates and Science Fair projects
  • Join the Events Committee – Help secure sponsorships, attendees and auction items for our events

We also encourage individuals and companies to consider providing pro-bono or in-kind services to the school and/or students. Are you looking to share your knowledge of finance, marketing, technology or nutrition? We look to develop long-term partnerships that will prepare our students for successful futures.
