    Helping Parents and Families Help Students Reach Their Goals

    The mission of the Parent and Family Association is to provide a welcoming community for parents and families of current students, to provide resources, guidance, opportunities for involvement and, timely communication that will assist students in attaining their academic and career goals.

    At St. Kate's, we take great care in creating an environment where your student will ultimately flourish. We have carefully designed a network of support for your student and thoughtfully guide students through the St. Kate's experience.

    Our hope is that you get connected to St. Kate's and stay connected.
