Advisory Page PhotoNueva’s advisory program plays a central role in the school’s mission to inspire passion for learning, foster social and emotional acuity, and develop students’ imaginations. While there is variety in the activities and events associated with the program, it remains grounded in a core set of goals and responsibilities.

Middle School students in grades 5 & 6 are grouped together in Advisories, as are 7th & 8th graders. Upper School students are grouped by grade.

The goals of advisory are:

  • To build community by creating small, family-like groups
  • To support students and to develop their social, emotional, and academic abilities
  • To engender trust and to create safe spaces for students and teachers
  • To advocate for students and to facilitate communication between them, their families, and their teachers
  • To have fun

The advisor is to serve as:

  • A personal and academic support for students
  • An advocate for advisees
  • A source of information and answers
  • A coach for students in need of strategies and suggestions
  • A model of good behavior

The advisee is to be:

  • Open and authentic in advisory
  • Trusting in advisors and peers
  • Caring and respectful of others
  • Engaged and present during advisory
  • Playful and willing to have fun
