Urban Collegiate Academy will have an advisory period for every full school day for 30 minutes. Students will meet in a small group led by an advisor (or mentor) to receive guidance, support, and resources to help them navigate their academic and social-emotional development. Students will engage in goal-setting, educational planning, career exploration, and social-emotional learning activities. Advisory will foster positive relationships between students and their advisors, creating a safe and supportive environment where students can discuss challenges, seek advice, and receive mentorship. Students will develop essential life skills such as self-reflection, problem-solving, decision-making, and interpersonal communication. Advisory promotes a sense of belonging and accountability.
