Academic Advising & Support
The advisory program assists students with the transition from grade school to middle school. We assign each child a faculty member to serve as an advisor throughout the school year.
Advisory periods take place three times per week. Students explore academic and personal needs that may include:
- Curricular expectations
- Organizational and study skills
- Personal conflicts
- Homework assignments
- Longterm project status
Advisors are available to meet one-on-one with students as needed. They also serve as an intermediary between parents and teachers. Though parents are encouraged to contact teachers directly, they may save time by communicating through their child’s advisor.
Advisors schedule parent conferences twice per year to update parents on their child’s progress. Parents can also arrange to meet with teachers of specific subjects as needed.
