SLOCA heavily relies on the help of our volunteers to support our staff. We need your hours, we need your help, we need your expertise and willingness to serve, we need your unique contributions in order to allow SLOCA to run as planned and be all we can be. And our volunteers need each other! We are asking each parent to sign up for a volunteer team so we can utilize your talents well.

The Specifics

Each trimester we require 15 hours of volunteer time per family. The trimester dates are as follows:

* If your student is in high school, please still use the dates posted below to ensure you submit all volunteer hours on time (volunteer hours follow the trimester system).

Tri 1:

August 27th – November 15th

Tri 2:

November 26th – March 12th

Tri 3:

March 18th – June 13th

  • You are required to volunteer 15 hours per trimester for a total of 45 hours per school year per family.
  • You must submit your hours by the last day of each trimester,  listed above. There will be a $25 late fee for any submissions after the due date.  
  • The monetary exchange rate for volunteer time is $16 spent = 1 hour.  Any supplies purchased must be requested by either the Volunteer Coordinator or SLOCA Faculty and arranged before you buy the items. If you have any doubt if a purchase you are making will count towards volunteer time, please ask. Please, also keep your receipts.
  • If you end up completing your 15 hours for a trimester and still have more hours to log be sure to select the next trimester on the app if you wish to rollover/get credit for those hours. (Please note that the app does not automatically roll over your hours for you.)
  • If you have a HS student they may fulfill family volunteer hours with the approval of the HS Director.
  • We encourage family and friends to volunteer for SLOCA; this can count towards your family’s hours.
  • Any hours not fulfilled will be charged to your Smart Tuition account at the rate of $16 per hour not served and/or logged. (This amount is prorated for amounts less or greater than one hour.)

How to Volunteer

Each trimester we require 15 hours of volunteer time per family. The trimester dates are as follows:

  • It is your responsibility to consistently check the Volunteer Opportunities Page to see our needs. This is where we will manage all SLOCA needs. Teachers also manage their own classroom needs please check in with your teachers to see how you can help!
  • Please sign up to volunteer for specific jobs posted on the opportunities page by emailing Tiffany Rivers at volunteers@sloclassical.org, or the other requesting party listed. When you sign-up for a volunteer opportunity, you are then scheduled to complete that task, much like being scheduled for a paid job.
  • We will send out a reminder to you that you have signed up.
  • If we are having trouble finding help we will send out emails to the volunteer teams for that specific opportunity. (We appreciate your help in these times.)
  • Show up on time with a cheerful heart ready to volunteer!


Not able to fulfill your hours? No problem. We have a buyout option available for the entire year for $720! Please contact Tiffany Rivers, our Volunteer Coordinator, if you would like to make these arrangements
