Mission and Philosophy


Mission Statement

Arendell Parrott Academy upholds a tradition of fostering each student's intellectual, creative, social, physical, and moral development in a positive and challenging educational community.


Honor. Initiative. Truth. Our motto guides our mission and we strive to inspire those values in our students. We encourage students to become confident, independent learners while fostering critical and reflective thinking skills. We focus on helping students fulfill their unique potentials and achieve at the highest levels in academics, arts, and athletics. Character development is very important to us; we partner with parents through our school-wide emphasis on good citizenship and community service. We believe that parental participation in a child’s education is vital to the success of the school’s mission. The Academy makes every attempt to inform parents of its purposes and goals and expects their strong support in pursuit of these aims.
