Thank you for the continued support of your student throughout the admissions process. We know our Charger Parents are an integral part of the successes that they have already achieved, and will continue to be a part of their future for many years to come. We appreciate your partnership in this endeavor and we hope that you’re just as excited as your student to join the Charger Family! 

Since updates to our New Student Orientation program have required us to make changes to our initial format, we wanted to ensure that parents of our New Chargers have access to all the important information, deadlines, and dates as we maneuver through the summer and quickly approach the beginning of the academic year.  We have created a number of resources below in order to ensure that as Charger Parents, you feel prepared and informed!

VIRTUAL MEETINGS

Join live Zoom meetings to hear from campus representatives on a variety of topics.  Zoom meetings will only be available during the scheduled dates and times. We encourage you to join promptly at the start of each meeting as to not miss out on any information! Look for summaries of each meeting in the Parent Resouce block below. We look forward to connecting with you!
