At Maryvale, we pride ourselves on our ability to give each student the individual attention that she needs.
In working toward accomplishing this goal, we implemented an Advisory Program at the start of the 2013-2014 school year. Upon arriving at Maryvale, each student is paired with a mentor who will walk through the year with her, guide her, challenge her and keep her on track. Every girl spends time each week with her advisor, making these weekly meetings a routine part of her schedule. Our advisors understand the value in engaging one-on-one with students, and they strive to empower them to learn joyfully, lead boldly and succeed humbly.
The purpose of Maryvale’s Advisory Program is to:
- Help students adjust to school, particularly the entering grade;
- Build community among students and encourage a sense of belonging and respect, while decreasing anonymity and alienation;
- Advise and coach students academically.
