The Junior High Advisory Program is a two year program for 7th and 8th graders that supports the students during their important transition toward full fledged teenagers. The intent is to find the joy and humor in this phase of development while also considering the more serious and complex challenges facing teenagers before their total immersion in high school. The vast realm of relationship - to oneself, to others and to nature - is the ground from which students are nurtured toward their maturing sexuality, their dreams for their future, and toward a deep respect for oneself and others.
Students meet 2-3 times per week throughout the year during the regular school week in combined or separate groups. Additionally, camping trips and field studies, speakers, community projects, research activities and extracurricular activities will provide opportunities for students to deepen their awareness and connections to self, nature, peers, community and to the whole world.
