TBCA strives to develop servant-minded leaders. It is our desire to help Titans learn to display love for others. Students will embrace the opportunity to serve in various ministry and outreach opportunities beginning at school and extending throughout the world. (Acts 2:42-47). As a result, Community Service at TBCA is a high priority.
High School students in the Class of 2024, 2025, 2026, and 2027 must complete 10 hours of community service each year they are enrolled.
Students may begin accumulating community service hours beginning the first week of June, before the start of the next school year.
A Community Service Form must be filled out by the student and turned in to the Middle/High School administrative assistant to receive credit.
The deadline to submit community service hours is two weeks prior to graduation. Any community service hours not turned in by this date will not be counted toward the student’s community service hour requirement.
Community Service hours will be tracked and graded along with the students' Bible class as a project grade. Students who do not complete the required number of service hours will have 10 points deducted from their fourth-quarter Bible grade for each hour missing.
Resources for community service opportunities and the Community Service Form can be found under the Guidance link on the school website.
Transfer students will need to complete 10 service hours for the school year in which they are enrolled.
TBCA seeks to partner with local organizations that seek to foster the love of Christ in others and look to better humanity. The school encourages its students to support Triad Baptist Church's ministries and find ways to help its members. The Guidance Counselor and the Coordinator for Church Relations are available to help students to find service opportunities.
National Honor Society or National Junior Honor Society students may not count their required service and tutoring hours to satisfy the NHS or NJHS requirements of service and the TBCA Community Service requirement at the same time.
TBCA encourages students to experience the unique blessings and benefits that come with being part of a mission trip. Students who participate in a missions trip (with TBCA or another organization) may report up to 8 hours of community service from their trip excluding travel days as acceptable hours.
To count as community service students cannot receive compensation of any time for completion of the task.
Service in the home is a wonderful thing and is encouraged by TBCA, however household chores, babysitting, and similar family activities do not count toward the graduation requirement for community service.
Students who volunteer to work concessions at games, staff the admissions table, announce, live stream, or run the game clock may receive service hour credit.
Students may earn up to 4 community service hours using TBCA service days.
Team managers are recognized as a part of an athletic team and cannot be submitted to be counted for service hours.
Some fine arts elective classes involve committing to performances/events outside of normal school hours. These events are considered part of the instruction of the class and should not be submitted as service hours.
Service hours may not be counted for, or supervised by family.
Students may not document a service activity where there is no leader or responsible adult (other than a parent) on-site to evaluate and confirm the student’s performance.
Service hours will only be documented with the completion of the Service Hour Student Report Form.
