What is Advisory?

The purposes of Advisory are:

·       Completion of an advisory portfolio which provides documentation that students are meeting the five Guiding Principles/Expectations and are working towards achievement of the school’s mission.

·       Sense of belonging - being a member of a group will provide security to the students

·       Dissemination of school information to students including daily announcements, guidance news, upcoming events, etc.

·       Discussion of school issues, such as dress code, schedule, etc.

·       Inter-advisory competitions (Fall Fest)

·       Opportunities for advisory-based service learning activities

·       General discussions of student related issues, such as elections, substance abuse concerns, career day, etc.

Students are REQUIRED to attend advisory as scheduled and complete all advisory requirements each year.

Freshman students are randomly assigned to an advisory group.  It is intended that this group remains together through the end of their senior year. This allows the advisees and their advisor to develop a collaborative, working relationship over a period of time.
