Advisory groups are faculty/staff-led small groups of students committed to providing individual support and guidance in the areas of academics, future goal-setting, college planning, school culture, and leadership. The Advisory Group program offers students the opportunity to grow and develop relationships with their peers as well as their advisor. Through this guidance and support, students learn to achieve excellence as well as find places to serve and discover their gifts.
A Curriculum to Foster Discipling Relationships
At Wheaton Academy, we developed an advisory program to make sure that no student falls through the cracks. In Advisory groups, our goal is to provide academic guidance and advocacy, support for goal setting and college planning, and to build a culture of discipleship and leadership.
Our advisory program not only ensures that every individual student has a mentor but also makes space to deliver valuable content that isn’t easily covered in the traditional curriculum. Everything from the responsible use of social media to our college-ready character traits of perseverance, social intelligence, self-control, gratitude, passion, and hope is covered by our Advisory Curriculum.
