Volunteer Information

At Banning Lewis Academy, we encourage our families to engage in their student’s educational environment by volunteering their time through various avenues at each campus.  Volunteers work alongside our staff and students to assist in achieving their success by providing support to our academic, athletic and other programs.

To become a volunteer, you will need to complete the application which also includes a criminal background check. The application will ask you to enter in your information, school preferences, and which volunteer function you are wanting to provide support. At the end of the application, you will be asked to complete a criminal background check.  The cost is $5.00 and you can pay with any major credit card. 

  • Each background check is valid for 1 year from approval.
  • Please allow at least 72 hours for your background check and volunteer application to be reviewed and approved.

All personal data and background check information remains confidential.  As part of standard school safety practices, all volunteers and visitors to Banning Lewis Academy must provide a photo ID each time they visit either campus.

If you have any questions regarding the volunteer process or to verify whether or not you are an approved volunteer, please contact Cynthia Harding at charding@blracademy.org

Once you have completed your Raptor volunteer account, you will be able to log any volunteer hours you may have that are outside of normal school hours(i.e. The office is not printing you a badge).

Don’t have time to give?  Donating $10 is equal to 1 hour of volunteer time.  This money goes directly back to our teachers in the form of needed supplies, PTO requests, and other various necessities to help support our teachers each year.  You can donate money by clicking the link below:
