Upper School – Workshops (9th-12th Grade)

Academy Workshop

At Parish, our Upper School students are empowered with a diverse range of resources to prepare for the upcoming academic year, excel in significant tests, and explore post-Parish opportunities.

The Academy at Parish, especially during the summer, provides a comprehensive array of preparatory academic camps, addressing Math, English (both reading and writing), Science, Spanish, as well as essential skills such as Executive Functioning and Speed Reading. Throughout the school year, we offer targeted study sessions for Midterms and Finals, along with SAT and ACT test preparation classes. Additionally, in collaboration with Parish faculty and programs, we continuously innovate new opportunities, including summer camps to fulfill community service requirements, career explorations across various fields, and much more.
