Relief parents, St. Nicholas Academy

St. Nicholas Academy is a supportive living experience for boys from families that are under-resourced who want to give their sons every opportunity to succeed in school and life.  St. Nick’s partners with families and St. Peter Interparish School to provide this opportunity.  St. Nick’s is seeking Christian, married couples or single individuals who are willing to be part of a pool of relief parents.  The role of relief parents is to care for the boys and home when the full-time house parents are off duty or away.

Typically, the full-time house parents are off duty every fourth weekend from 9:00 AM Friday through 7:00 PM Sunday.  Relief parents, on a rotational schedule, fill in during this time.  They may also be asked to be on a call list to help fill in when the house parents are on vacation and/or sick.

Relief parents receive an hourly wage, all legally mandated benefits and a compensation package that includes a private suite and all meals for the days on duty.
