We take our role of in loco parentis very seriously. Each advisory group consist of one faculty advisor and 4-6 advisees of the same class year. In addition to weekly structured time in this small group where students and faculty can discuss relevant, important social emotional development, each advisor keeps daily tabs on their advisees.
From a morning greeting walking across campus, to a quick-sit down during office hours or a snack-break at the country store, advisors know their advisees well and act as the first point of contact between parents, students, and teachers. Guided by the social emotional growth model, the advisory curriculum brings mentorship, structure and guidance to the student experience and incorporates important soft skills into each student's overall development.
