Your Family Connection to the Mount

As a parent or family member of a Mount student, you want to stay up-to-date on what's going on at the Mount in order to support their experience. The Office of Parent and Family Engagement was established with you in mind.
The Mount believes family plays an important role in the success of students.  The Office of Parent and Family Engagement is your resource to answer questions about your student's experience, connect you with important information, and give you access to special events.

Visiting Your Student

When you plan a visit to see your student, you’ll want to stay an extra day or two and take in everything the area has to offer. Just outside our gorgeous mountain campus you’ll find historic Gettysburg and countless outdoor activities near the Appalachian Trail such as hiking, kayaking, golf and skiing. And just down the road is the lively, historic town of Frederick offering unique dining and shopping, first Saturday activities, and the picturesque Carroll Creek Promenade.
