Advisory Program

Trevor students display uncommon levels of maturity, self-advocacy, and the confidence to take risks. Why? In part because of trusting and mutually engaging relationships with their teachers. At the core of the teacher-student relationship at Trevor is an unparalleled advisory program.

Homeroom teachers (Nursery–5th grade) and advisors (6th–12th grade) are involved with all aspects of a student’s life at school. They serve as the central collection point for information and oversee the totality of the students' academic, social, and emotional development. With low teacher/advisor-student ratios, the faculty is well positioned to monitor progress and well-being, as well as act as advocates and guides for each student. Homeroom teachers and advisors schedule and conduct family conferences, serving both as school representatives and moderators, to ensure that the conferences are constructive and that the student understands any set goals.

Middle and Upper School advisors schedule one-on-one conferences with each advisee once every cycle. During these meetings, the advisor reviews each student's accountability reports, which are regularly generated by the subject teachers. Advisors also check on the well-being of their advisee and review any challenges that may affect the student; they serve as the primary liaison between the family and the school.

Trevor Parent

My son had an extraordinary advisor, who has played a huge part in helping to raise my son. I can’t express how grateful I am as a parent for my son's intellectual and emotional leaps. I credit them to his close relationship with his advisor.
