Family | Spartan Springboard

family orientation

Learn about the resources available to students, interact with current students and other parents, and discover the traditions and history of D'Youville at Spartan Springboard.

As a parent or guardian of a student, your support has helped them succeed. They've chosen a student-focused school dedicated to their safety and success. They're a Spartan now. But we consider you a part of the Spartan family, too, and we want to ensure you can continue your support.

At our day-long parent and family orientation, Spartan Springboard, you'll learn about what resources are available to your student and how to stay connected with D'Youville. 

Sending a family member to college is a big life event, and you probably have some questions. That's great, we'll have staff and current students ready to answer them. Though Spartan Springboard is not mandatory for parents and guardians, we encourage all parents and families to attend. We look forward to meeting you.
