How to Register for Orientation


Students can register online. After you have successfully registered online, you will receive an email confirmation.

When your student registers for Orientation, they can register any family members wishing to attend Family Orientation. If you need to add family members to your registration, your student will need to go back to their confirmation email and click "Edit Registration" to reschedule. All family members, regardless of age, who are planning to attend Family Orientation must be registered in the system.

Note: For some sessions, there may be an additional fee per family member due during the registration process.
