What is the format of Parents Weekend?

Parents Weekend typically includes three days of programming and opportunities for you to engage with your student. Parents Weekend is designed in a conference format where you choose which sessions to attend. Each day has many activities—too many for one person—so you’ll pick what feels most relevant to you and exciting for parents.

Friday is the busiest. Programming starts early-morning and continues into the evening. Your student will have a regular class schedule this day folowing Honor's Convocation, so the events are more intentionally geared towards parents and visiting family members. More programming is offered on Saturday with more opportunities to attend events alongside your student. Sunday is the lightest, with most activities wrapping up by midday. 

What should I do if I have additional questions about Parents Weekend?
