Founded in 1912, Francis Parker School is a nationally-recognized independent/private day school. The School is committed to graduating students who embody those qualities necessary for academic success, professional and personal fulfillment, and global awareness. For 106 years, the School has offered balanced, challenging and integrated programs in academics, the performing and visual arts, and athletics. Parker students of today are equipped with the skills and self-confidence to be the leaders of tomorrow.

The School expects its students to aspire to do great things and in the process, take risks that permit each student to go “as far as the mind can see.” Recently, Parker has been recognized by The Wall Street Journal for being one of the top independent schools for sending many of its students to the most selective universities and colleges in the United States and elsewhere in the world.
