    Family Orientation

    All new families are invited to attend Family Orientation. Family Orientation is full of activities and events, including special workshops just for family members, that will introduce you to New School life, campus services and resources, a community of other New School families, and all that awaits your student here. Details of spring 2019 orientation, including registration information, will be available on this page in November 2018.

    Additional Resources

    The Parent Portal hosts Student Connect, where you can request access to your student's educational information for the 2018-2019 academic year. If your student approves your request, you can use Student Connect to view his or her GPA, enrollment status, and class schedule.

    For a parent to access a student's billing accounts and financial aid information, the student must grant the parent access to his or her account as an authorized user through MyNewSchool.
