Freshman Parent Night

New Student Academy is a unique, meaningful opportunity for new-to-DSST students to meet their new classmates and staff members, build community, and learn the ropes of DSST.  Attending New Student Academy is the best way to prepare for the start of the school year, and it is required for all new-to-DSST students.
