Advisor Program

Advisors work with students for their success.  In their Tuesday meetings with students, advisors may cover any number of important areas, by:
  • Reviewing weekly academic progress reports to keep students on track in their studies
  • Helping students define their academic goals and develop plans to achieve them
  • Assisting students in making co- and extra-curricular choices consistent with their interests and aims
  • Keeping students up-to-date on school academic policies, graduation requirements and pertinent school rules and regulations
  • Informing students about school resources and community activities and events that may be helpful and interesting
  • Working with students to develop the skills they need to independently monitor progress toward achieving their educational and career goals—and to advocate successfully for themselves when necessary
  • Developing a proactive relationship with students by respecting their backgrounds, and being sensitive to their concerns and values
In partnerships with teachers, administrators and parents, advisors help students develop the informed and confident mindset they need to flourish today, and tomorrow.
