Desert Academy’s Advisory Program is designed to provide students with a consistent and supportive home base as an integral part of their school experience.
High school advisory groups meet twice a week, and middle school advisories meet daily. In both divisions, advisors provide academic support via a curriculum including note-taking, keyboarding, organization, time management, and academic honesty, and tracking academic progress. Advisors also guide students in their community service efforts, which change year over year as students mature. Students develop the learner profile traits central to our mission and connect with their peers as teams through our ongoing advisory competition. Parents are encouraged to contact their child’s advisor for support in making their experience at Desert the best it can be.
