Welcome Families!

The Student Success Coaching unit believes students thrive when they are surrounded by a community of support. Families are vital to student’s success. We encourage families to attend orientation and immerse themselves in Patriot culture! For that reason, we created this page as a resource for the family members of Mason Patriots.
