Forging young people of impact
What is leadership? To us, it's more than titles, popularity and transcript-building. It's about being a person of impact.
What do young people of impact do?
- They are forces for good.
- They enrich the life of another.
- They enhance the performance of a class, team, cast or group.
- They identify problems or opportunities and galvanize followers to bring lasting change.
At Parish, we believe each of our students, from PreK - 12th grade, is positioned to lead and learn to be a young person of impact.
In concert with the ParishLeads program, our faculty and staff pursue this quest with the same zeal and enthusiasm as they teach their classes. It is central to our purpose and a source of genuine passion in our community. We build young people not only of intellect, but of heart and spirit as well.
ParishLeads features common language and a recognizable framework unique to Parish yet supported by current research and best practices in the field of leadership studies. Centered on our tenets of Wisdom, Honor and Service, ParishLeads unites our community in a common understanding of what it means to be a person of impact.
Students accepted into the Leadership Institute during their freshman year commit to three years of leadership coursework, experiential activities and projects.
