Advisory

Wildwood School is distinguished by its internationally recognized advisory programs, which begin in 5th grade and continue through the student’s senior year. Advisory offers a structured curriculum that integrates academic support, team building, multicultural programs, community involvement, and activities that incorporate higher-level thinking and communication skills. 

Students develop supportive relationships with adults they trust, as well as with their peers. These strongly established connections and relationships are foundational to moving ahead with ease, in anticipation of increasing academic rigor and evolving social networks. The small advisory group setting is a natural incubator where norms are established and kids can try out new ideas and explore their own identities. In the process, they cultivate a sense of self—academically, emotionally, and socially. 

Advisory classes are led by teachers who serve as students’ mentors, advocates, and the key contact between the school and the students’ family. Advisors are responsible for the narrative assessments that chart each student’s progress. 

Wildwood’s advisory program is nationally recognized. Hundreds of educators across the country have adopted our practices after participating in our Outreach Center Advisory workshops or by applying concepts from The Advisory Toolkit, a publication that offers detailed information on creating and maintaining an advisory program. Learn more about our Outreach Center.
