  Is Parnassus Right for You?  


Animus Program

The Latin word ‘animus’ means memory, intellect, and character which fits well with our Grammar stage and the focus on learning and memorizing the facts of every subject. Animus 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. 

For more information about the program, please visit the Parents page of the school website.
