Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

At Parker, we provide students with challenging and engaging educational opportunities to learn and grow with others in a diverse and welcoming community. Parker thrives on the progress of the individual and society as both are rooted firmly in the center of our curriculum and school culture.

Colonel Parker defined our school’s commitment to excellence when he said, “Ideal citizenship demands of the individual the highest degree of knowledge, power, skill and service.”

We welcome you to visit the school and talk to us about your child. Come see how our faculty develops talents, cultivates curiosities and encourages vigorous, imaginative exploration of essential concepts and experiences in academics, the arts and athletics.

Experience for yourself Parker’s enthusiastic spirit for educating students to be knowledgeable, confident and resourceful learners.  Parker students are able to think and act with creativity, courage and commitment as participatory citizens in our interdependent contemporary world.

Students grow with Parker. Parker, in turn, grows with its students. The character of our school strengthens the character of our students, and our faculty’s imaginative teaching of interdisciplinary curriculum cultivates the formation of self-discipline and moral understanding in our students.

Join us as we continue our second century of educatingChicago’s children for excellence and exploration, character and citizenship.
