  Is Parnassus Right for You?  


Accendo Program

The Latin word ‘accendo’ means to kindle or to illuminate, and is offered to our students in the Logic School to signify the shedding of light and understanding into the knowledge they accumulated during the grammar stage.

Accendo is a fee-based program and it includes breakfast in the morning and healthy snacks after school. The program seeks to support all students. Please see an Administrator if Federal Guidelines for financial assistance applies or if financial hardship prevents participation. Please contact the school for additional information.
