Bell Shoals Baptist Academy


“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth."
3 John 1:4

Bell Shoals Baptist Academy offers several opportunities for parents to be involved in their student's education.  All campuses offer ways for parents to volunteer in their student's classroom. These volunteer opportunities are best arranged by speaking with your student's teacher.  The Brandon campus also offers the Preschool Volunteer Fellowship, the Parent Teacher Fellowship and the Education Steering Committee.  

Preschool Volunteer Fellowship

The Preschool Volunteer Fellowship (PVF) exists to bring honor and glory to the Lord through supporting its members in their role as parents of preschoolers, and through service and support of Bell Shoals Baptist Academy. The PVF aims to promote Christian Fellowship between parents of preschoolers while serving to further the benefits our children receive while attending Bell Shoals Baptist Academy.

Parent Teacher Fellowship

The Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) is a board comprised of parents who are willing to serve Bell Shoals Baptist Academy for a one year commitment. The PTF is in charge of various events throughout the year such as; Open House, the Ice Cream Social, Pop in with Pop, Teacher Appreciation Week and more.
