You may be unexpectedly dealing with a new set of family dynamics during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope we can help.

Welcome, Parents and Families!

Going to college is a big step—for you and your student.

We know your student isn’t the only one embarking on a huge journey. You are too. As a Fordham parent or guardian, you will be their partners through their college years. And we want to be your partners throughout the journey.

One of the tenets of a Jesuit education is cura personalis, or care of the whole person. That means that we don’t just tend to your student’s educational growth; we strive to foster their moral, emotional, and spiritual growth too. It means we give them the tools to excel academically and to seek clarity in the role they want to play in this world, both personally and professionally.

"Fordham is transformative—students receive a rigorous education in New York City and are nurtured according to the Jesuit principle of cura personalis (care for the whole person), helping them tap their full intellectual and spiritual potential."
