At Parish, we “do” school differently
In a rapidly changing world, the traditional college-prep experience must be rethought, even as early as PreK and Kindergarten. It’s no longer about how much students and, eventually, graduates know that matters, but what they CAN DO with that knowledge.
As a leading PreK through 12th grade independent school in Dallas, Parish embraces innovation as a means for redefining the high-quality college preparatory experience and leading the shift from “college prep” to “life ready.” Through a vigorous, yet balanced curriculum, students become proactive participants in the learning process and receive a top-tier education in a joyful and intentionally spiritual community that:
• Nurtures a Culture of Integrity, the foundation of Parish’s broadly inclusive community within the values-oriented Episcopal tradition.
• Cultivates Leadership and Service, which is integrated into the fabric of the total school program.
• Fosters Innovation in Teaching and Learning with comprehensive and embedded programs across each division, in which faculty leverage many tools, from technology to partnerships, to offer a tailored learning experience that energizes and engages each child.
• Offers Definitive Preparation for College and Life, producing inspired students who think, communicate, create and collaborate.
Become a part of Parish Episcopal School, an open-minded, supportive community that guides you through your educational journey , and step out into the world as a Young Person of Impact who leads and serves with integrity and purpose.
At King of Glory, we believe that when you pursue your relationship with Christ through worship, through the community of seekers, and through life giving service, God is honored and we in turn grow in the richness of our faith.
We think the best way to grow awareness of God’s call for our lives is in the context of relationships. Through Small Group Ministry and our Fellowship Groups we find moments of grace and wisdom that open us up to God’s story in our lives!
People of hope expect to make a difference in the wider community. When people of God serve in the context of church or city or the world, it brings out the shape of our call and it builds the credibility of our faith!
Do you want to discover an intimate path with God, grow deep in the mysteries of faith and find your life’s call and significance? We invite you to join us Sunday morning. We offer two traditional services at 8:15 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. and a Jazz Blend service at 9:30 a.m. We celebrate Holy Communion at every service.
If you have questions or would like to speak with someone about visiting, please contact Judy Craigo.
