Student Life

Advisory Program

Our advisory program ensures that each student has consistent contact with one adult, the advisor, throughout the academic year. The advisor keeps informed of a student's progress, offers support and helps with scheduling. The advisor is the first person to whom parents can turn when they have questions or wish to voice a concern. Each advisor has no more than eight student advisees.

A student meets with his or her advisor frequently as time is set aside every day for this purpose. On some days, a student may meet with the advisor to check in and hear daily announcements. On other days, the meeting may be more substantial and the two may take extended time to discuss progress in a class or other issues. Often advisors and students meet simply to chat or to have lunch together. In addition, advisor/advisee groups work together during kitchen duty and may meet together as a group for community activities and discussion.

Each new student is assigned an advisor by the dean of student life, and each spring, returning students are given an opportunity to request advisors for the following year.

"I absolutely adore my advisor."

"I absolutely adore my advisor and the other students in our group, and I always find myself looking forward to Tuesdays and Fridays, when I get to see them. I'm always able to get the support I need and it's a great way to stop and take a breath during the school day.."
