The Academy conducts its annual magazine
drive to raise money for programs and
activities to benefit our children.
Although subscriptions and renewals are
accepted all year, there are prizes and
contests the students work towards in the
fall. Orders can be placed through a
student or over the internet. Go to
and enter our school ID: 2513703.
Our school earns 40% from each sale.
Going into our fourth year, the Bowl-a-thon
has proven to be an exciting time for our
students and staff. Two months of contests,
activities, rewards and excitement spread
out over those long winter months. Students
take pledges from family & friends and then
show off their skills at the big bowling
event. This fundraiser which asks
sponsors for a flat donation has brought
in over $15,000 to our annual budget each
year and makes the winter blahs obsolete.
Many companies will match your donation to a
non-profit organization. Click on the
following link to see over 600 companies
with a Matching Gift Program.
Companies with Matching Donation Programs
- Shopping Card
Our Shopping Card Program is another way you
can leave part of your dollar at the Academy
throughout the year. But every time you
reach $2,000 in Shopping Card purchases
(gas, groceries, home improvement projects,
dinner out, etc.), you will receive an
extra $50 in Cards as a reward.
That’s a 2.5% rebate just for stopping here
before you shop. Look through
our list of Shopping Cards and take notice
of those businesses you already frequent.
Stop by the Academy office, or on
Sundays between services at Parma Heights
Baptist Church at the Academy
table in the glass walkway -
before you shop. (Kohl’s will
actually let you pay your bill with our
shopping cards.) And don’t forget you can
use our Giant Eagle cards to purchase any
other cards that they carry—then you’ll
accumulate fuel perks to save on gas
as well! This program typically adds
between $10,000 and $15,000 towards our
GARAGE SALE (May
first Saturday in May has become a hugely
anticipated community event sponsored by our
PTF. With donations and volunteers from our
Academy & Church families, we take our
unneeded everyday items and turn our gym
into the largest Garage Sale under one
roof. We have brought in over $8,000 in one
day, but the impact on our community is our
passion. Store your donations in an
attic or closet until the Wednesday before
the sale; which is when we start
setting up and receiving donations for the
event. Also, mark your calendar to
volunteer during those three days of set up
and sale. It’s a guarantee you’ll be
blessed even before that weekend is
