Community Awareness and Service
One of the fundamental values of American society is that individual citizens care about and help others, and serve their community. Colonel Francis W. Parker believed that students should learn by doing and be encouraged to understand and fulfill their responsibilities as citizens of the community and the nation.
All Parker students are given the opportunity to give back to the community and help those in need through service clubs and in the case of the Upper School, required community service hours. These enriching experiences help to develop leadership skills, caring for others, and strong character that stay with our students long after they leave Parker.
