University is an exciting new chapter in your student’s life. As a parent, you play a key role in making this transition a smooth one, and helping to support your son or daughter’s success once they’re here.
StFX is known for providing a safe, close-knit, and supportive environment for students. This includes welcoming parents to our StFX family, recognizing that you are an important partner in ensuring a rewarding and successful university experience for your student.
StFX is well known for being ranked among the very best undergraduate universities in Canada. This means not only will your student find incredible opportunities for academic and personal growth, but they will also receive an education that employers worldwide will respect and recognize. In a highly-competitive job market, our 45,000 alumni worldwide provides a strong network for your student upon graduation.
We offer a number of programs and services designed to help ease the transition to university for students (and parents!).
