Welcome New Students and Parents at Registration
At registration, parents of current students greet new students and parents, often answering questions about how to navigate the campus or what to expect as a student at Saint James. We’ve found that new parents especially appreciate this welcome. If you would like to be a parent greeter, please contact the Parents’ Association or the Admissions Office.

Host an International Student
An opportunity for parents in the local Saint James area, hosting an international student may include offering a home-cooked meal or attending sports events or stage performances. Some international students want their host parents to visit on Parents Weekend. Others value some adult advice or guidance about navigating a new culture. In turn, many host families find that hosting an international student opens doors to the wider world for their families. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the Parents’ Association or Marc Batson, Dean of Students.
