IMG_5738 Academy Prep prides itself on the volunteer efforts of the community. We could not sustain our programs without volunteers. Annually, Academy Prep averages over 9,000 volunteer hours from parents, corporations, non-profits, trustees, community members, high school students, and graduates. If you would like to make a difference, click here for more information or see the following opportunities to explore:

Study Hall: Do you have experience tutoring or special patience to work with students on homework needs? The perfect fit for you may be in study hall. Monday through Thursday, 5:00-6:05 pm, is dedicated to students who need extra help in Mathematics, English, History, and Science.

Qualifications: Volunteers must be able to commit one hour a week and must be 18 years of age or accompanied by an adult.*

Extracurricular Activities: Share your talent with students in chess, dance, music, art, golf, or intramurals. We work with many community partnerships that teach life skills, such as Boy Scouts, Fit Families for Life, The Lightning Foundation, First Tee, Enterprise Village, Girl Scouts, Ogden and Sullivan Law Firm, and St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital. Or perhaps you can work with us to design an extracurricular activity!

Qualifications: Volunteers must be able to commit to attending once a week and have experience in business, instruction or classroom management.

Field Trips: Our students attend Saturday field trips once a month by grade. This is a great opportunity to be a chaperone, not only with our students and families but also our community partners. On occasion we have weekday field trips to community organizations like The Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center and The Florida Holocaust Museum.

Qualifications: Volunteers must be able to commit to attending one Saturday a month (for regularly scheduled trips) and must be at least 18 years of age.*

Special Events: If you have special skills or like to coordinate, one of our many events throughout the year may be the opportunity for you. We have school picnics, plays, and celebrations. Our development team also manages fundraising activities like golf tournaments and seeks administrative support.

Qualifications: Specific positions may require experience.

*Age exception: Students that are 17 may volunteer during the summer after receiving high school degree or higher.

Other Volunteer Opportunities: Volunteer opportunities may be available in library support, classroom tutoring, and lunch supervision.   To learn more or schedule a tour, contact: Amy Ragg, Community and Administrative Manager at 813-248-5600 ext. 1119 or
