Community Block


In addition to two short morning meetings, each advisor meets with his or her advisee group for a longer meeting during community block each Wednesday. Through these meetings and periodic one-on-one discussions, the advisor follows each advisee's academic, social, and extracurricular progress. Advisors suggest practical tactics and strategies for improvement in study habits, organization, relationships with teachers, and other academic concerns. The role of the advisor is principally as an advocate, supporter, and personal faculty liaison to the student.
