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. Advisory groups meet weekly for group discussions about various topics. 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 about their concerns.
