You will be assigned a faculty advisor who is responsible for monitoring your academic intrapersonal growth. Advisory groups consist of six to eight students of the same grade who meet daily. Extended time is allocated each week for groups to discuss specific topics, complete an activity, or simply act as an opportunity to talk and catch up in a safe space.
First-year class advisors are either ninth grade teachers or members of the administration. These mentors are chosen to ensure close communication and attention to the academic and social adjustments for new students. After your first year, you'll be reassigned a faculty advisor who remains with you and your group for your remaining three years at SEM.
Our advisory program creates a lasting bond between you and your advisor, as well as facilitates communication on your academic standing with parents or guardians.
