The Ancillae-Assumpta Academy Student Advisory Program is designed to assist students in gaining essential academic, social, and life competencies. The program is based on the belief that students need the opportunity to develop relationships with adult educators who act as guides and advocates for the students and can offer support in difficult social or academic situations. Further, the advisory program offers guidance for students during adolescence and fosters the development of self-esteem and resiliency. Students in grades six, seven, and eight, meet in small groups once a week with a faculty or staff advisor.
The Advisory Program will provide students the academic skills necessary to become more efficient learners and to improve their academic achievement through goal-setting activities, high expectations, and academic support.
The Advisory Program will help students develop the necessary life skills for the management of daily activities. Additionally, the program will increase positive relationships within the community through service projects.
The Advisory Program will help students develop social competencies that will enhance their interactions and communication with peers. It will also provide each student with an adult advocate, fostering supportive and caring relationships with faculty and peers.
