ADVISORY

Advisory at Urban Collegiate Academy will be a 60-minute daily program (except Fridays) in the morning and afternoon. Scholars will meet in small group led by an advisor. It aims to create a supportive environment for scholars to build relationships, develop social-emotional skills, and receive guidance. Activities include goal setting, character building, social issue discussions, and study skills workshops. Advisory also emphasizes exploring interests, developing life skills, and incorporating various themes such as diversity and mental health. Additionally, it provides academic support through assistance with course selection, college/career exploration, and study habits, as the school counselor will regularly push into each advisory group. The specific structure may vary, but the goal is to foster academic, social, and emotional growth.
