Advising and Support

ADVISING

Each student is assigned a faculty member to be her advisor. To facilitate success at school, the advisor serves as the liaison between the student, her family, and the School faculty and administration. Advisors give out report cards, discuss grades, act as advocates, and take a special interest in each of their advisees. Advisors are not licensed counselors and do not provide mental health care service, but can assist in obtaining services for a student or making recommendations to the School Counselor and/or Dean of Students about their concerns.

Advisory groups, organized by grade level, meet weekly for group discussions about various topics.


PEER TUTORING

A peer tutoring program is available in the Mathematics Department to enhance the communication and leadership skills of advanced students while benefiting students who can benefit from additional assistance beyond that provided by the faculty.
