COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:

Aloha! We have been able to safely offer classes in-person this academic year and last. This has been possible in part due to our small school setting, spacious campus, health and safety protocols, and dedicated school community of students, faculty, staff, and families who work together as 'ohana (family) to navigate these challenging times together.

From Parker School

At Parker School, every student is known, valued, and nurtured.

We are a non-profit, independent, co-educational day school located on Hawai'i Island in the small rural ranching town of Kamuela.

Excellence, integrity, and compassion are the cornerstones of our mission. Through a college-preparatory program, students in grades K-12 thrive in an environment that cultivates the qualities necessary to succeed in an interconnected world: creativity, curiosity, resilience, constructive risk-taking, and teamwork.

Our small school setting, 'ohana—or family-like—atmosphere, diverse student body, and talented faculty combine to foster confident, compassionate individuals who are thoroughly prepared for college, who enthusiastically engage in life, and who positively contribute to an ever-change global community.

Parker School graduates are destined to make the most of their lives!
