Parnassus learning and teaching philosophy comes alive as talented faculty members guide students through our classical trivium program on a journey of engagement with English, Literature, Math, Logic, Sciences, Latin, Greek, Spanish, History, Geography, Music and more. Read more about what distinguishes Parnassus from other schools in the Classical Education section of this website.

Parnassus seeks and supports students from all backgrounds and our proven rigorous classical program demonstrates that every Parnassus scholar will thrive in the School’s challenging academic environment.

We hope you’ll find the information on our website helpful!

"Mom, I never want to change schools again! Parnassus is awesome and no school will ever be this good!"
-- 3rd Grade Parnassus Student

"Just over a year ago this time our family was making a very important family education decision to move our children into this new, "excellent" classical school.  After much research and decision making we enrolled our children into Parnassus.  One year later, this school has more than exceeded our expectations. We couldn't be happier and more proud of what our children have accomplished at Parnassus. The transition was smooth and the children happy and excited to learn this amazing curriculum.  So many people have worked so hard to make this happen, the founders, teachers, staff, board members, parents, scholars, and volunteers. For this we are ever grateful.  We cannot wait to see what is yet to come."
-- Parnassus Parent
"Parnassus has been a true inspiration to our family and we feel fortunate to have such a quality educational institution in our community.   We are thrilled that our son has excelled within the classical education curriculum and look forward to the future growth of the school."
-- Parnassus Parent
