Middle School Advisory Program

Middle School students meet with their advisory groups for about 30 minutes two times a week.  The advisory period provides an opportunity to encourage character development and help students make wise choices, academically and socially.  The period includes activities focusing on learning to interact with peers, academic achievement, setting goals, and giving back to the community.

The advisory program introduces students to school-based advocates for the purpose of fostering academic success and personal growth.  Each group provides a forum for topics relevant to adolescents in today's world and creates a safe, friendly environment to receive support and modeling for academics and social interaction.
