Student Work Information
PAA offers a limited variety of work opportunities. All students seeking employment at the school must complete a work application yearly (available at the front office). Students are able to work only after applications and forms have been submitted and approved by the business office. Students employed at school must be prompt and reliable. All Students receiving scholarships like the Portland Adventist Academy Student Scholarship (PAASS) need to actively seek employment on or off campus and may lose their scholarships if dismissed from work.
Portland Adventist Academy, in partnership with Southern Adventist University’s ASSIST grant program, is able to offer a unique experience to our students. Through this service-oriented program, our participating students are paired with elderly adults in our community in a mutually-beneficial way.
Students in the ASSIST program provide help to senior citizens by performing light housecleaning and/or yard work. They also have fun with their elderly friends through activities such as visiting, reading, and playing games. As the young people build generational bridges, they also benefit from the wisdom and mentorship of the older adults. Not only are these students developing skills needed to be successful—commitment, leadership, communication and interpersonal skills, empathy, and collaboration—they are also learning the value of service.
