Parent Volunteer Program

Our Parent Volunteer Program is designed to provide volunteer support on each school campus. This helps us keep tuition increases to a minimum while continuing to provide students with a quality education. There are two options for fulfilling the Parent Volunteer Program which parents select in the enrollment/reenrollment process.  

Option #1: Volunteer To Help Support Horizon Christian School
By choosing option one, each family volunteers a minimum of 20 hours during the school year. See below for a list of volunteer opportunities. Parents have until June 1 to turn in volunteer hours. 

Option #2: Pay $200 To Help Support Horizon Christian School
This option indicates your preference to pay the $200 family volunteer fee instead of volunteering 20 hours during the school year. The fee will be added to your September incidental fees.

  • To volunteer, including driving students, each parent must be approved by Horizon Christian School at least two weeks prior to volunteering.
  • Each year, to become approved, parents must complete the New Volunteer Form (first time volunteers) or Returning Volunteer Form.
  • Please make sure your references reply to the automated email they will receive to help expedite the approval process.
  • Once you are approved, your name will appear in the HelpCounter volunteer tracking system and you can begin volunteering and logging your hours.

Families who choose Volunteer Option #1, but fail to get fully approved AND log 20 hours in HelpCounter before June 1st, will be billed on a pro-rated basis as outlined in Option #2. This amount will appear on your June FACTS statement.

For questions regarding Volunteer Forms, please contact:
Janine Louw:

If you cannot find your name in our HelpCounter volunteer tracking database, you are NOT Approved, and need to complete the Volunteer Form.
