Welcome Centre Parents and Families
Welcome to the Parent section of the Centre website. We hope this information is useful to you as you begin your Centre journey. While the college years represent an important voyage for your son or daughter, we believe that it will also be a time of learning and growth for you, too!
Many of us reflecting on our own college experience may comment wistfully that it was the best four years of our life. Those of us at Centre want that to be true for your student, and we'd like for their Centre years to be a positive time for you, too.
The different sections for parents on this web page contain information suggested to us by current Centre parents—and we think their advice is important and useful!
If you have a question or concern that is not addressed here, please feel free to contact us at any time. Carol and I will be happy to answer your questions. Or you can call Centre College's main phone number, 859-238-5200, and Donna Phillips will be happy to help you.
