Our Mission & Vision
Inspired by the values of Wisdom, Honor and Service, the mission of Parish Episcopal School’s inclusive Episcopal community is to guide young people to become creative learners and bold leaders prepared to impact a complex global society.
In our vision to Reimagine School we are evolving how students learn and succeed, by realizing and fostering their passions in a warm and joyful learning environment.
Parish is committed to redefining the high-quality college preparatory experience and engaging students in a balanced learning environment through challenging core curriculum and strategic programs that develop and inspire.
The principles guiding Parish reflect awareness of individuality:
- Honor student voice and choice in learning
- Meet students where they are, helping them reach new levels of mastery as they are ready
- Help students develop enduring habits of mind which are transferable to a lifetime of learning and excelling
- Create learning conditions which engage students in authentic, meaningful work
As a school that welcomes families from all faiths and backgrounds, Parish Episcopal School nurtures a culture of integrity and cultivates leadership and service among our students, parents, faculty and staff.
The religious pluralism of our school community provides a magnificent opportunity to foster the spiritual formation of our students from a variety of faith traditions.
Daily chapel services are at the center of Parish life. It’s where we can reflect as a community and our lives of faith can grow. It’s where we can celebrate the many traditions of being a Parish student.
We believe that embracing our inclusive community facilitates our social and intellectual growth as well, and drives excellence in teaching and learning. We empower our students to be authentic and prepare them to lead by demonstrating knowledge of and respect for the rich variety of people and points of view that exist in our complex global society.
