Information for Parents

We recognize that parents play an important role in making a student successful here. While we encourage students to continue on the path toward becoming an independent adult, we know that they will need your support to make that successful transition. While federal law forbids us from providing parents with certain types of information, we always want to make sure that we keep the lines of communication open.

Because you are very important, we encourage you to come to Orientation with your student. At that time we will provide you with a binder full of useful information.
