Thank you for your interest in Summer Programs at Parker! As circumstances related to the pandemic continue to unfold, we are prioritizing in-person programming with grouped and limited capacity. Health and safety are of the utmost concern. Francis W. Parker School maintains strict COVID-19 policies that will also be required for participation in summer programs.
Welcome to Summer 2022!
Summer is a wonderful time for students to have fun, explore new interests or engage more deeply with an activity they enjoy. Summer Programs at Parker invites students from all around Chicago to come to our beautiful campus to learn new things, build friendships and have fun. Take a look at what we have planned, and check back later as additional programs may be added.
