The mission of the Lakehill Advisory program is to create a strong support system and cultivate meaningful teacher-to-student and student-to-student connections. The Lakehill Advisory program promotes academic excellence and fosters lifelong learning while empowering students to become active, compassionate community members. Our advisory program strengthens our school by interweaving smaller communities to create a larger social tapestry.
The Lakehill Advisory program empowers students to develop essential social and emotional skills, embrace their unique identities, build meaningful relationships, and make positive contributions to their communities. Integrating key social/emotional concepts and study-skills principles empowers students to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally, preparing them for success in college, career, and life.
Our vision is to foster a safe and supportive environment where every student feels seen, valued, respected, and understood.
A successful Advisory program involves three key contributors: The Advisor, Advisee, and Lakehill Community.
Advisors provide personalized guidance and support to each student, addressing their academic, social, and emotional needs. Advisors create a safe and inclusive space in a caring and playful small-group setting, where students can freely express themselves, explore their identities, and develop a sense of belonging. Regular check-ins, goal setting, and reflective discussions help students build self-awareness, resilience, and social skills. As mentors and advocates, advisors help students navigate challenges and conflicts effectively.
As an Advisee, students play an active role in their growth and development, taking ownership of their learning journey. Through active engagement in advisory activities and discussions, students will develop essential social and emotional skills that will benefit them throughout their lives. Advisees are expected to demonstrate self-awareness by reflecting on their strengths, challenges, and emotions. They will develop self-management skills, such as setting goals, managing time effectively, and practicing resilience in the face of obstacles.
Building strong relationships is an essential part of the Advisory program. Advisers and Advisees participate in collaborative activities that promote positive communication, empathy, and teamwork. The Lakehill Advisory will strengthen the community culture through social awareness, appreciation, and respect for the perspectives and experiences of others. Active participation and commitment to growth will empower the community to become compassionate, engaged global citizens.
