Welcome parents and families!
At Wheelock, we know that sending your student to college can be an exciting and challenging time. We believe an informed, supportive family plays an instrumental role in a student's educational success and we are committed to partnering with you throughout your student's Wheelock experience.
This web page is designed to serve as a key resource for parents and family members. We highly recommend that you sign up for Lucy's Ledger, our monthly parents and families e-newsletter brimming with information about events, public safety, health and wellness, athletics, and more. Visit the Student Experience page to learn how Wheelock encourages students to be engaged, connected, and successful during their college experience and beyond. Visit the Parent Experience page for information and tools that can help ease the transition from high school to college and empower your student to reach his or her educational, professional, and personal goals.
Please contact us anytime with questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing you and your student on campus!
