Parent Program Nights

The McQuaid Counseling Office hosts a parent program night for freshmen/sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Each parent night concentrates on what to expect in that coming year, as well as a road map of what is ahead. Additionally, we will host a College Financial Aid Night, College Information Week, and Transition to College Program.
