Why is Parent Involvement so Important?

It is our passion to provide exciting educational opportunities for our students while teaching them to love and serve one another. The teachers, staff, and parents at HCS believe that a love of learning is developed through opportunities for involvement. 


Research has shown that parent involvement leads to higher academic achievement in students. At Haltom Christian School, parent participation is the foundation of our educational model, and we believe that parental involvement is the key to a student’s academic success. 

Haltom Christian School Parent Roles

Parent-Teacher Partnership

HCS parents and teachers serve together as one to disciple children with honorable character, unshakeable faith, and a hunger for knowledge and truth. Our educators support our parents, and we all work together to educate our students and to present biblical teachings in every aspect of a child's life (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). 

Parent Teacher Fellowship

The Parent Teacher Fellowship at Haltom Christian School is foundational to our school community. An environment of encouragement and a place for families to fellowship and support one another, our PTF provides an opportunity for parents to utilize their God-given talents and spiritual giftings to further the educational opportunities of our students (1 Peter 4:10). 

Volunteer Teachers

HCS encourages parents who are gifted in a special skill, talent, or knowledge set to get involved in the classroom by teaching a hands-on, educational, and engaging course to HCS students. Examples may include building workshops, gardening courses, in-depth art classes, living history presentations, dance lessons, etc. 

Homeschool Fridays

Haltom Christian School exists as an extension of the learning instilled in the home. HCS provides an opportunity for families to unite and experience the joy of learning together. We strive to “be like minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind" as we create opportunities for children and their families to explore academic excellence. (Philippians 2:2)  

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”

- Benjamin Franklin
