Advisory Program

Faculty Mentors Individualize Learning Experiences

In addition to the individualized services offered by Notre Dame’s Counseling and College Counseling departments, the Academy has implemented an Advisory Program to add a new level of personalized support for students.

The Advisory Program helps build relationships by connecting incoming middle schoolers and freshmen with faculty mentors. Students get to know their mentor, get to know other students in a small-group settings, and, in the process, learn more about themselves.

At Notre Dame, the advisor offers academic guidance to the students in his or her group and supports their social and emotional development through team-building activities, Socratic seminars, and social activities.
