Parker 7-22

Head of School Scholarship

The Head of School Scholarship Program, spearheaded by Jeff ‘75 and Karen Silberman in 2017, ensures that all qualified students have access to a Parker education. The Head of School Scholarship Program improves the pathway for qualified students from all socio-economic backgrounds to have access to a Parker education. 

The Impact

The Head of School Scholarship Program improves the pathway for qualified students from all socio-economic backgrounds to have access to a Parker education. The Program significantly increases Parker's ability to provide a life-changing educational experience for qualified students, and advances the School’s mission and commitment to greater socio-economic diversity and inclusivity.

The Program recognizes and supports ambitious and talented students who possess the potential and motivation to succeed academically at Parker. The essential goal of the Program is to ensure that Head of School Scholars thrive at Parker by engaging them fully in academics, arts, athletics, and student life, in order to best prepare these young men and women for a higher education and beyond. 

The Scholarship
The Head of School Scholarship Program will provide supplemental funding to Grade 6 to 12 students who gain admission to Parker, demonstrate financial need, and complete a secondary application. The Head of School Scholars will be selected by the Head of School. The program will provide awards to help cover the Scholar's tuition and other essential costs, including books, uniforms, clubs and activities, global trips, transportation, and support from the Gooding Family Academic Resource Center.
 
In order to maintain their standing as a Head of School Scholar from year to year, students are expected to: maintain academic good standing; maintain good citizenship; demonstrate and uphold the School’s honor code; mentor younger Head of School Scholars; and complete an annual survey. Scholars will be invited to meet annually with the Program’s founding donors and Head of School.
