Serve with Us

Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) provides a strong school-to-home partnership and structured opportunities for parents, grandparents and family members to serve our KCA family. All parents are encouraged to find an area to volunteer.

KCA volunteers must undergo a background check before participating in any events with our students. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please fill out the background check application and submit to the school front desk.
