The advisor is the point person for the general well-being of each student. Students meet with their advisory groups of approximately 9-11 students each day for a few minutes, which serves as the homeroom check-in base. Advisors review each student's academic progress periodically in team meetings or individually with teachers as needed. They coordinate two parent conferences a year where students set goals. Advisors provide updates to parents on students who are on academic warning or probation status from the previous trimester. They administer the activities of the Advisory Program, including Homeroom Olympics, community service, discussions about school life, and any special activities.
The goals of the Advisory program are to develop relationships between advisors and advisees that support the advisees' academic and social well-being in the school, enhance students' sense of belonging, promote school spirit and sense of community, provide a forum for conversations on character development, offer a stronger base for productive communications with parents, and reinforce the principles of the Academy's mission and the Community of Respect.
