Scholarships for Applicants to Parker School
In addition to need-based financial aid which is available to all families at Parker School, several need-based and merit-based scholarships are available for students new to Parker School. The number of awards to be made for each scholarship is dependent upon several factors, including the size of the qualified applicant pool, space availability in each grade, and guidelines established by the Parker School Board of Directors.
Scholarship applications for the 2019-2020 school year will be accepted beginning November 1, 2018.
