Why parent/family support matters to your student

  • Your student is more successful and happy when they feel their parents and family are supportive.

 

  • Your encouraging words go a long way.

 

  • We asked CI students why family support matters to them. This is what they said:
    • “To remind you where you’re coming from.”
    • “Because without family it’s harder to get through college.”
    • “It matters to me because they give me another reason to graduate from college.”
    • “To remind me that all of their sacrifices have been worth it.”
    • “Promotes school success through emotional support, motivation and inspiration.”
    • “It gives oneself the strength to continue and support during difficult and fun times.”
