The Kehillah Advisory Program is designed to foster academic development and character education. Each advisory group is composed of a small number of students of the same grade and one faculty member. The groups meet twice a week, allowing students and advisors to discuss concerns and ideas, as well as foster a sense of community. Advisory serves as a way to prepare students for all-school meetings, and to elicit feedback from students on a variety of topics. 

The advisor also acts as a communication link between students, teachers, and family. Advisors maintain regular one-on-one communication with their advisees and regularly check on their academic performance. Advisors provide additional support and connect students with resources or study plans, as needed. Advisors are also the point-person for communication with parents.

School Counseling Services

Our school counselor is dedicated to infusing the Kehillah culture and curriculum with the social and emotional skills that our students need to be successful at school and in life. These skills include: respectful communication with friends and teachers, active listening, conflict negotiation, and tools for relationship repair after problems are resolved. We also strongly encourage healthy adolescent development in the areas of independent problem solving and self-advocacy with peers and teachers.

Our school counselor:
