  Is Parnassus Right for You?  

Welcome to Parnassus Preparatory School!

Few decisions have more potential and impact than your child’s education. The way they see the world, the way they approach life and the depth of their character are all influenced by education. While making this important decision, we hope you will consider Parnassus Preparatory School. We are a tuition-free, college preparatory, classical charter school. Our distinction is in the liberal classical curriculum. Parnassus is licensed as a K-12 classical charter school enrolling for grades K-2 for 2014-2015 academic year. We will be adding grades until we become a high-school. This fall, we'll be adding 9th grade, our first grade in the School of Rhetoric.
