Parents and Families
Holy Cross welcomes families as members of our community. We recognize that although students are the drivers to their Holy Cross education, family involvement is important on their journey through emerging adulthood. We look forward to partnering with families as we work toward the shared goal of promoting student learning, well-being, holistic development and success.
College is a time of transition for both you and your student. Learn how you can successfully support your young adult during this time.
The Office of Parent and Family Engagement is thrilled to coordinate a variety of opportunities for you to engage with your student and the life of the College by offering on-campus events, communications and connections to campus resources.
Mark your calendars and make sure you don't miss any upcoming events, deadlines, or other campus happenings.
Every fall, we invite family members to come and explore Holy Cross during our Family Weekend. We hope to see you this fall, Oct. 20-22, 2023!
The College will celebrate its 177th Commencement Exercises for the Class of 2023 on Friday, May 26, 2023.

As a Jesuit, Catholic liberal arts college, we know that the best way to understand the world around us is to embrace the full spectrum of perspectives and life experiences. To that end, we welcome students, staff and faculty members of every gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status and gender identity. The college has a number of DEI initiatives and resources available to support students of varying identities.
