Through innovative educational programs and individualized learning experiences, we definitively prepare our students to: think Critically; Communicate effectively; Collaborate purposefully; and Create meaningfully.
To help our students attain and apply these skills, we have distinctive signature programs such as ParishProfile, ParishLeads, ParishSTEM, ParishPersonalized, ParishVirtual and the Academy of Global Studies. Our emphasis on leadership, global awareness and personal and community relationships – all within the framework of Episcopal integrity and values – makes attending Parish a unique experience.
ParishSTEM has been recognized as a model for the purposeful integration of STEM components across an entire PreK-12 program. Few schools nationally offer as rich an array of integrated STEM activities (interactive labs, activities, projects and enrichment classes experienced by all Parish students), co-curricular experiences in robotics, and after-school programming through ParishEXTEND as we do through ParishSTEM.
