Every Upper School student is part of a homeroom advisory group. Each group consists of 7-10 students and is led by a faculty member. Advisory group meetings are designed to build positive relationships between students and faculty members outside of the classroom setting. Additionally, the homeroom advisory program provides each student with a faculty advocate and mentor. At the end of each year, students will choose an advisor. In most cases, a student can have the same advisor for all four years of Upper School.
