Get Involved

As the parent of a Scripps student, you are automatically part of the Scripps Association of Families (SAF). SAF helps students and their families make the most of their Scripps years by providing information about campus life, offering campus and regional events, and a variety of programs for students and their families.

Being a Scripps parent also means you have access to the resources you need to support your daughter’s educational experience. We will reach out to you through various communications, and we hope you will join us at family events throughout the year. And last but not least, we encourage you to volunteer for Scripps College. Your participation will strengthen our collective Scripps community as we look towards a bright future!
