12th Grade
Parent Resources

Spiritual Focus

During your student’s school year, Victory Family Church will go in-depth in February on a biblical principle during services. This isn’t the only time they will learn about this topic. We are just emphasizing the principle during this period. The subject is determined based on their age, stage of development, and what’s culturally and socially relevant.


With the pressures of your twelfth grader’s future and society’s pressure, their spiritual focus year should be on freedom. Your student will walk through a 12-week small group that enables them to make breakthroughs with their lives and questions. We’re so excited about the freedom that God has in store for your student.

Student Engagement

Parent/student engagements are designed to help connect and strengthen the family unit by providing intentional conversations that your student needs in this season of life. In August, we want to help prepare you for the transition from parenting a student to now an adult and how to navigate this new season in you and your student’s lives.

Parenting Adults

Your 12th grader is now becoming an adult. However, you still play a vital role in their life. Studies show that 70% of students walk away from the Lord after they graduate high school. Your role as a parent is to help keep them connected to their faith, church, and community.

We have a helpful resource that can be found below this section to help you navigate this season from Godly people who have already been where you are going. Please take the time to watch this video, as we believe it will greatly bless you.
