Advisory, a central part of the CCES Middle School experience, is where students learn about themselves, each other, and the greater world. It is a time to focus on observing and practicing the CCES Mission in their lives and our greater community. The Advisory program seeks to create cohesion among the Lower School, Middle School and Upper School by equipping our students for entrance into and exit from the middle school.
Every middle school student is included in a group of students known as an “Advisory,” which is facilitated by a teacher (advisor) at their grade level. That teacher greets his or her advisees first thing every morning, spends time with them during study hall, and leads a 45 minute advisory session on most Fridays.
At CCES, we know that our students are whole individuals for whom all aspects of life are connected. The student cannot be separated from the person, and Advisory time is intentional in nurturing and celebrating our students’ development as young persons of character. Advisory is a time to focus on who we are and who we want to become.
