Legacy Families

Parish’s Legacy program gives students in 1st through 12th grade, as well as faculty and staff, a unique opportunity to regularly connect with one another in what we call Legacy Families. Just as our close-knit, open-minded community sets us apart from other schools, so does our Legacy program.

Parish Legacy represents an innovative way to:

  • create shared experiences for our students to interact, build camaraderie and develop mentoring relationships.
  • provide opportunities for faculty and staff to connect with one another and with students they don’t ordinarily interact with.
  • promote unity and encourage every individual to become a vested member of our community.
  • enhance our understanding of and appreciation for Parish’s rich heritage and history.
  • serve others in the Dallas/Fort Worth community.
  • develop leadership and communication skills.

Students, faculty and staff are divided into cross-divisional groups of approximately 20 people. For example, a Legacy group might have students from 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th grade, as well as three faculty and staff members.

Legacy events occur three times a year on the Midway Campus, with Upper School students leading and facilitating each group. Activities vary from event to event, but revolve around three key themes:

  • Panther pride and spirit
  • Parish heritage and history
  • Service to others

Legacy groups stay together from year to year with the same individuals in each group, creating mini-families within the larger Parish community.
