Parents Information

College & Careers also includes a separate, but optional, program for parents, which will provide parents with information about the college search process, financial aid and more. We invite parents to join us for a program that is both social and informational.

Registration will be available in late May, 2019.

All parent events are optional, so join us for any or all that interest you!
