Information for Families
Welcome, Parents and Families!
Going to college is a big step—for you and your student.
We know your student isn’t the only one embarking on a huge journey. You are too. As a Fordham parent or guardian, you will be their partner through their college years. And we want to be your partners throughout the journey.
One of the tenets of a Jesuit education is cura personalis, or care of the whole person. That means that we don’t just tend to your student’s educational growth; we strive to foster their moral, emotional, and spiritual growth too. It means we give them the tools to excel academically and to seek clarity in the role they want to play in this world, both personally and professionally.
