Parents and Family Day


Each year we look forward to sharing the school with the parents, family, and friends of our students. While touring campus or listening to faculty presentations, we hope you appreciate that it is the people that make Cummings School so special. Across our learning community of students, alumni, faculty and staff, we share a culture of active citizenship, a commitment to one health, a focus on research, and a dedication to animal welfare.
