Thinking about your student’s future? So are we.


Your student’s success is our priority. Beginning at the college search and application stage, through to graduation and beyond, the HWS community will surround your student, simultaneously lifting them and challenging them to build their brightest future.

As the parent of an HWS student, you also join an equally strong and vibrant community of family members who are actively involved in their students’ educations. Through dedicated social media accounts, virtual events and in-person gatherings, Hobart and William Smith parents and family members provide advice and counsel to one another and the Colleges, enhancing their students’ experiences.
