Special Programs and Activities

Special programs and co-curricular activities at Park complement the academic program by encouraging leadership and personal growth through practical experience. Independent studies, Senior Projects, and foreign exchange programs provide invaluable experiences off campus, while interscholastic athletics and student activities enrich life at Park.

Upper School students lead assembly discussions, attend leadership conferences, chaperone field trips for younger students, and engage in community service opportunities. Other aspects of student life include student government, the school newspaper, theater and musical productions, and foreign exchange programs.
