SIGNATURE PROGRAMS

ADVISORY
PROGRAM
Academic knowledge and skills alone are not enough for young people to become successful adults. Every student has an adviser who acts as an advocate and “positive coach” for them over their four years in the Upper School. In advisory groups of 6-8, 被推荐人发展相互支持的关系, 学会应对学术挑战和课外活动, while building the social-emotional skills that prepare them to be successful in college and the world of work. Ultimately, Advisory helps students discover a sense of purpose and craft more meaningful lives.

Students earn 5-6 credits per year while focusing on 2-3 courses at a time in a block schedule. 一个学期的课程更少, these courses—that we call “intensives”—often meet for 75 to 105 minutes at a time.
