Beyond the School Day

The Academy

The Academy serves as the umbrella for all academic programming taking place outside of the regular school day.

These classes and programs are for students from Prek-12th grade, both for Parish and the greater Dallas community, as well as learning opportunities for adults. The Academy is directed by Dr. Ann Morgan, who can be reached via email should you have any questions.

Taking Honors Biology over the summer allowed me to be able to take AP Chemistry, and next year, AP Physics over the course of junior and senior year. I get to focus on my preferred classes without worrying about completing the required science classes during the school year.

Taking a summer course allowed me to explore the nuances of World Religions in a manner simply not possible during the school year. The course truly opened my eyes to a new understanding of religiosity and global ideologies, which greatly impact modern political and social discourse.

Due to my choice to take Health the summer before my freshman year, I was able to both double up on math classes and take a year-long computer science class (COOP).
