Community Service Hours
Students Community Service
Students are required to perform a minimum of 10 hours per semester of community service while enrolled in the Harding Fine Arts Academy. This service can be performed in the community or through a pre-approved Harding Fine Arts Academy activity. The areas of community service available to the student will be made known from time to time by the school but it is ultimately the student’s responsibility to seek out, perform, and properly document service (Student Community Service form) and submit to their Advisory Teacher. Students can pick up Student Community Service forms from the main office or download it from the Harding Fine Arts Academy website.
Extra hours do not carry over to the next school year.
Parent Volunteer Fulfillment Program
Since Harding Fine Arts Academy is a tuition-free charter school, we do not receive any funding for building maintenance, repair and upkeep. Therefore, parents/guardians are expected to commit themselves to perform a minimum of 10 hours per semester to the Harding Fine Arts Academy.
The areas of community service available to parents/guardians are made known from time to time by the school. These opportunities are promoted through Harding Fine Art Academy’s Facebook page, Twitter account and through emails to parents. Opportunities are also listed on the Harding Fine Arts Academy website under the “Parents” menu. Examples of some of these opportunities are below:
- Attending PTO Meetings
- Attending School Open House
- Participating in Monthly Volunteer Days (Saturday morning work day)
- Working at Concession Stand or ticket sales during sporting events
- Working the scoreboard at athletic events
- Chaperoning (or driving students to) HFAA events and field trips
- Acting as a Test Monitor for mandatory state tests
- Volunteering for school special events (plays and other performances)
- Performing any repair or maintenance work in which you are qualified
- Providing food, water and other items for Teacher Appreciation and other HFAA events
- Cleaning or organizing
- Opportunities listed below
In addition, a monetary donation or donation of goods of $10 is the equivalent of 1 hour of service.
Additional Volunteer Opportunities

Depending upon the event, parents will either document their time on a provided Sign-In Sheet, Parent Volunteer Fulfillment Program forms or they might enter their hours directly into the school’s volunteer hour computer program. The Harding Fine Arts Academy Office Manager monitors and tracks Parent Service Fulfillment hours. Each semester parents/guardians will receive a report stating the number of hours earned. Extra hours do not carry over to the next school year.
A form to document either student or parent service hours is available in the school office and is also available below.
Students turn forms into their Advisory Teacher
