  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 institution licensed as a K-12 charter school, distinguished by our commitment to a classical liberal arts curriculum.

For the 2015-2016 academic year, Parnassus will offer grades Prima to Second Level Rhetoric  (K-10).
