Parents and Families


The families of our students play an important role in the HWS community. The Office of Parent Relations supports special family programming for events including new student Orientation in August, Homecoming and Family Weekend in September, and Commencement in May.

These parent webpages will help direct you to the various offices on campus that can assist you and answer questions. In addition, on this site we will post events of interest to parents throughout the year.

If I can assist you in any way, please contact me.

Best regards,

Kelly Young P'16
Director of Parent Relations
