Advisory Program

An advocate for every student
 

Middle school students meet with their advisor everyday.  This faculty member oversees every aspect of his or her small group of advisees' St. Luke's experience.  Advisors serve not only as academic counselors but are also concerned with the social and emotional health of their students.  Advisory provides our middle schoolers a safe place to dialogue about the relevant issues in their lives.

The advisor serves as a nexus of communication between school and home and is the primary contact for parents.  The relationship between this faculty member, the student, and the parents is intended to be a strong and enduring bond.  It ensures that every middle school student has an advocate who truly knows him or her as a student, as a St. Luke's citizen, and as a unique individual.  Because of the depth of this relationship, advisors also oversee eighth grade chapel talks and are actively involved in secondary school placement.

 

"Most remember middle school as a hard and confusing time socially. Our advisory program provides students a core group that they can share with and work through any struggles or issues. It's a place to be known and be heard."

Chris Duke, Director of Intermediate and Middle Levels
