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. 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 are a school deliberately composed of a diverse group of people, dedicated to opening our doors for broad access and aiming to overcome systemic obstacles to a Parker education.
