Head of School's Welcome

Welcome to Arendell Parrott Academy

Brooks Stutton

On behalf of our faculty, staff, and students, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you and provide a brief introduction to our school: a distinguished independent, coeducational, nonsectarian, TK-12 college preparatory day school. Well known for our educational excellence, Parrott Academy provides a stimulating liberal arts education focusing on four traditional pillars: academics, fine arts, athletics, and service. Whether expanding critical thinking in the classroom, learning life-lessons in an athletic venue, portraying a character on center stage, or traveling to Ecuador to help construct classrooms, students at Parrott Academy are supported as they excel in diverse ways while rising to the highest level of personal commitment and achievement.

Recognized statewide for outstanding academic, fine arts, athletic and community service programs, Parrott Academy also provides an unparalleled family-oriented, nurturing, and safe environment. This climate provides the ideal environment for increased student achievement and helps forge important life-long bonds among students, teachers, administration, and parents. With an average tenure of over 20 years, our remarkable faculty stimulates and challenges young people’s minds while modeling the values represented on our school seal: honor, initiative, and truth. Through a school wide honor code, the Academy community promotes good character, ethical judgment, and social responsibility among our students.

Please browse our website. But no snapshot, logo, or motto can fully capture the warmth, energy, family atmosphere, and passion of our school. For this reason, I hope you will visit and experience, first hand, the real Parrott spirit. I look forward to personally greeting and welcoming you to our campus.
