The Parish community school

The Parish Community School is an affordable parent taught educational cooperative that serves families who want to be more involved in their children’s education than the traditional school setting allows, yet need time in their week to take care of other needs as well.


Students attend class 4 days each week (Monday-Thursday) while one parent from each family is required to volunteer at the school 2 days each week. Members of the community school are Christian families, who work together to share the responsibility of educating their children. All required core classes will be provided for students in grades PreK(4)-12th, as well as Art and P.E.


After School Program

The Parish Community School also hosts an after school program for its own students as well as students from Eugene Fields Elementary School. During this time, 3:40 p.m.- 5:00 p.m., they will have access to homework tutors, hands on art projects and reading resources.

Each family from the Parish Community School must volunteer to help a limited number of times throughout the school year. Additional volunteers from The Parish as well as the Parish Children’s Director will also participate in the program. 

The school will plan field trips and family activities throughout the year which will include the students from the after school program and their families.
