Parental Involvement

Liber Academy Commonwealth has a high standard for quality. In order to maintain the quality of education in our school and keep our costs low, we have asked parents to pay the price of their time to learn more about our philosophy and methodology and participate through volunteer service.

All first-year families participating in the Liber Academy are provisional members until parents fulfill the member agreements. Families cannot become members in full standing until these agreements are satisfied. Provisional Members have until the Spring Parent Meeting to fulfill the Member Agreements.  If there are extenuating circumstances, please contact our Vice Chair, Deena Callister 801-928-6797
