The Volunteer Program provides opportunities for parents and adult members of the parish community to serve the students in our school. Volunteers are needed in various capacities within the school. Volunteering helps to build a stronger link between the home, school, and parish community.
St. Albert the Great at Assumption Academy requires all volunteers to complete a two-hour VIRTUS class and complete 24 online instructional readings and assignments. Volunteers are also required to have their fingerprints submitted to a background check by the State Bureau of Criminal Investigations (BCI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). This is required of all volunteers who work in the school more than four hours each month.
