Parent and Family Orientation

Parents, families, and support systems are welcome to attend a separate orientation program specifically for you! The program will run at the same time as the student program, but in different locations on campus. You'll learn what to expect from your student and how to partner with us to aid your student's success. Please note that students are allowed 2 guests, only.
