Community Engagement

The ideals of community service, leadership and civic responsibility have deep roots in Parker history. The school was founded on the educational philosophy of Col. Francis W. Parker, who believed students should learn by doing and be encouraged to understand and fulfill their responsibilities to serve their community.

Today, service-learning opportunities begin in Kindergarten and continue through Grade 12. Optional student-led advocacy and social service clubs abound in the Middle and Upper Schools. Many activities take students off campus to engage with the greater San Diego community, the country and the world.

Upper School students go beyond the classroom by performing community service. By graduation, each student completes a minimum 70 hours of service that includes formal reflection on experiences, supervision and evaluation.
