Character Development in Middle School

Extra support through Advisory Program

We know it’s tough to be a teenager, so Minnehaha Academy provides comprehensive guidance and support to prevent adolescents from “falling though the cracks.”

Each Middle School student belongs to a Homeroom Advisory group of 12–17 students that meets daily for 30 minutes. Teacher–advisors serve as advocates, ensuring that students are on-track for growth and success.

Advisory activities include schoolwork monitoring, devotions, chapel attendance and follow-up, and instructional and exploratory events concerning personal, social, and study skills development. Teacher–advisors hold weekly meetings among colleagues to exchange information and insight, and to provide support on behalf of students.
