Here at Capital Prep we meet as a community each school day to devote time to Advisory. The main purpose is to foster personalization, strengthening the relationship between each student and their learning environment. It is the responsibility of the advisor to monitor both social and academic development of each of their advisees throughout their experience at the school, while fostering a positive school culture.
Advisors work to create affective bonds with their advisees and their families and to act in the role of academic mentor. Guidance in both domains are provided daily and students are encouraged to create and successfully meet both short and long-term goals in each. Student-led conferences are utilized for advisor and advisee assessment of these goals.
In advisory, students develop skills needed to become agents of change. Advisors promote students becoming agents of change by encouraging the creation and collection of artifacts, identifying, and facilitating public service activities and assisting in the development of the senior justice projects.
“We have discussions about life, school, problems in the world, solutions to problems in the world, and it is just interesting to see what is going on in other places besides Hartford, or the US. It often makes me feel blessed at what we have here.”
