Chief among the responsibilities of our faculty is to serve as a student advisor. The advisor/advisee relationship provides a foundation for all manner of student support, counseling and guidance. A student should feel comfortable approaching his/her advisor with any concerns or problems.
Advisor groups have five or six students organized according to graduating class. Advisors connect with their advisees regularly throughout the week. We value frequent communication with parents by utilizing a variety of media, such as cell phone, e-mail, and text messaging. Parents are encouraged to contact and connect with their child’s advisor in order to communicate concerns or ask questions about their child’s progress, performance, and well-being. Although eighty percent of our students live away from home, we intend and hope to work closely with parents in the guidance and growth of their child during his/her time at New Hampton School.
