The mission-based Upper School advisory program at Lausanne Collegiate School is designed to give students the one-on-one attention they need to succeed in high school. Teachers build meaningful relationships with the members of their advisories and the parents of their advisees to help guide them through the academic and social challenges that present themselves throughout the year. Advisors actively seek information about the academic and social needs of their advisees, serve as advocates for advisees and are also the primary contact for the family in the school.
Grade level advisories will typically meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week, sharing the time period with convocation on Monday, clubs on Wednesday and special visits with college advisors and the student counselor on Fridays.
A curriculum is set for the advisory by the student counselor and lesson plans are sent to advisors on a weekly basis who then lead discussions with their students and check on each students’ highs and lows of the week.
Lausanne advisories are made up of seven to eight peers and help provide a major support network through each student's experience in the Upper School providing as many opportunities to succeed as possible.
