How Did You First Hear About Parker?

Parker Families:

How did you first hear about Parker? I’m writing at the official opening of enrollment season to describe options for your neighbors and for all families of prospective students to learn about Parker prior to the annual admissions lottery, which will be held this year on Thursday, February 7th, 2019.

One option is for prospective students and their families to experience part of an actual school day prior to the lottery. On six Thursday mornings in November, December, and January, a limited number of prospective students and their families can spend ninety minutes on campus: parents will have their own informational program while prospective students shadow an advisory and either an MST or AH class; families will reunite and depart after the first hour of class. Workday mornings aren’t convenient for all, so similar programming is available on three evenings in December and January.  

Most of these outreach efforts are aimed at students and families not currently enrolled at Parker. Currently enrolled families are welcome, of course, knowing the sessions are pitched at folks completely unfamiliar with the program. Siblings of currently enrolled students have preference in the lottery, but siblings of currently enrolled students DO need to file an application by the February 1st deadline.

Thanks for being part of the annual recruitment and enrollment process! We are grateful for parent volunteer panelists at the information sessions and for the strong “word of mouth” recommendations to your neighbors and friends.

~Todd
