We are excited to get to know you! Parker is a private independent coeducational day school located in the heart of Chicago. A Parker education is rooted in the progressive tradition of Colonel Francis W. Parker and John Dewey. Educating students since 1901, Parker’s timeless and transformative approach to education teaches students to think and act with empathy, courage and clarity as responsible citizens and leaders in a diverse democratic society and global community.
We offer grades Junior Kindergarten through 12th on our beautiful six acre urban campus in Lincoln Park. Small class sizes provide the opportunity for our inspiring faculty to nurture children’s curiosity, encourage persistence and foster a growth mindset. Students learn to work collaboratively with their peers and never lose sight of the joy of learning. Equipped with a Parker education and the Parker spirit, how will your student be able to change the world?
Parker is a school deliberately composed of a diverse group of people, committed to equity and inclusion throughout the school community and curriculum. Come visit us to see Parker in action!
