A tenet of the Hun School experience, advisory is a group of eight to ten students, overseen by a faculty member. Students are placed in an advisory freshman year and remain with the same group for their four years in the Hun Upper School; Middle School students rotate advisors each year. A student’s advisor is there to encourage, guide, and insert accountability when needed. Faculty advisors are often the first stop for students or parents who have questions about the Hun experience, and they help new students adjust rapidly to life at School.
Advisories meet regularly, and discuss everything from the course selection process to the ins and outs of life at Hun. They might focus on time management resources one week, and collaborate on a group project the next. They are built-in social groups, academic and co-curricular sherpas. For most students, advisory is a home base or a moment of clarity from the hustle and bustle of the school year.
