The Purpose of Advisory

The fundamental purpose of the advisory program is to develop a meaningful and supportive relationship between a teacher and the students in the advisory group. Every student needs to have a relationship with at least one adult in the school which is characterized by warmth, concern, and understanding. The advisor should be the adult in the school who knows the most about the student’s life and is able to act as the student’s advocate during the student’s time in the school. The advisor supports and assists his/her advisees with all aspects of school life and is the primary contact for parents.
