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.

Parker Community ENGAGEMENT Board
The mission of the Francis Parker Upper School Community Engagement Board is to provide an outlet for Parker students who want to focus their time and efforts on community service activities. The ultimate goal of this organization will be to increase student participation in service work and social action, while working to shift the perception of community service from an hourly obligation to a meaningful commitment.
