Advisory Groups

At The Mount Vernon School, relationships are foundational to learning and there is no better place to foster those connections than during Advisory. The Advisory Program provides a time to develop and grow relationships to self, others, school, and community. Students will remain with the same Advisor for all 4 years of their Upper School Experience. Advisory is guided by these essential questions:

– How might we build a community where kids learn to grow in relationships and build life skills that are essential to relationships?
– How might we create a purposeful, guided program that educates and strengthens the whole person while establishing a lifetime relationship full of fun and lasting memories?
– How might we guide students in finding the answers to questions such as, “Who am I? Who are we? What role do I play in the we?”
