Trailblazers Parents and Family Academy

Welcome to the Trailblazers Parents and Family Academy! The Trailblazers Parents and Family Academy provides you with resources to support your student.

We invite you to join us for customized informational programs for you and other first-generation parents throughout the year. The workshops deal with topics ranging from “Understanding the Financial Side of College” to “Maximizing Financial Aid for the Year Ahead” to “So Now Your Student Is Halfway Through Her Studies” and much more. We hope that participating in the Academy will be helpful and will allow you to connect with other Notre Dame families as well.

In the meantime, if you have any questions or need information about any aspect of university life at NDMU you may click on the Parents Request Information link on the right. The Trailblazers Director will contact you through your preferred method of communication. Our team is here to help you, your family, and your daughter as she transitions to college and journeys toward graduation.
