Building the whole child is equally important as learning about content, and we do this through our advisory program which focuses on building character, career skills, and creating a student’s personalized learning plan with the support of a coach/mentor. Advisors take into consideration the strengths, interests, and growth opportunities unique to each student.
Every student meets with their personal advisor four times a week, learning how to enhance their strengths and build on skills important for success like perseverance, collaboration, and leadership. Advisors work with students to plan personal and professional goals and work on their internship Capstone project, due in late April, each year.
In addition to focusing on emotional health and growth, students also learn practical study skills, participate in team building activities, circle talks, and explore different career pathways. During advisory, students build their e-portfolio, a student-designed and managed showcase of their work both within and outside of the classroom.
