  • Provide strategies, resources and referrals for additional student and family support as needed
  • Provide parent education on salient topics related to adolescent development
  • Engage in regular dialogue with families in order to navigate through an optimal high school experience and maximize postsecondary options
With Faculty, we will:

Shaping Tomorrow's Leaders

The Advisory and F.R.E.S.H. Program

The Advisory and F.R.E.S.H. (Faith, Excellence, Respect, Service, Health & Wellness) Program is a teacher-facilitated class students attend twice a week. The goal: to build community through school-wide, grade-level, and small group activities.

 The four year, scaffolded outcomes encompass everything from transitioning to and through High School, to identifying resources, evaluating relationships, improving one’s self-awareness, advocacy and communication, and supporting students and families through college applications, college planning, and post-graduate opportunities.
