Purpose of Advisory:
The purpose of Advisory is to create a sense of connectedness and community at Pathways and to assist in the development of social, emotional, and academic skills within our students.
Organization of Advisory:
Advisory takes place every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 1:39pm-2:14pm. Most Advisories have 12-15 students in them with one staff member. They are separated by grade level so that each grade can focus on topics pertinent to them.
What takes place in Advisory?
Each week, students participate in a short group activity led by the staff member. Some weeks, they may participate in a team building activity and at other times, they may focus on a skill such as time management, conflict resolution, or goal setting. Freshmen and sophomores focus mainly on academic and social/emotional skills while juniors and seniors spend a great deal of time on college and career planning.
