Early in the school year all students are asked to choose a faculty advisor. Faculty advisors meet with their advisees every Wednesday during morning meeting and at breakfast once per week. This interaction gives the adviser many opportunities to get to know each student. Advisors help students with their academic planning, university admissions and social concerns. Advisors stay in regular contact with their advisees’ teachers and parents. Most advisors live on campus and are available to students day and night as well as on weekends.
