Rectory School

An Independent, Coed, Junior Boarding (5-9) and Day School (Early Childhood-9)

Advisor Program

With the Rectory Creed, Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Compassion, as its foundation, the middle school advisory program is designed to educate, support, and encourage our students’ healthy growth. Advisor groups are small in size (3-5 students), enabling the advisor, who serves as the child’s primary advocate on campus, ample time to devote to each student.

In small group settings, the tenets of our creed offer guiding principles that help drive discussions and shape our students' attitudes about themselves, others, and the community as a whole. Meeting multiple times throughout the week, the advisor guides student decision making, facilitates student organization, and assists students navigating the social interactions inherent in these middle school years. The advisor also serves as an essential link between school and home.
