Daily mentorship and 24/7 support
House parents, advisors, and teachers work as one team to look after your well-being and success. You also join an advisory group led by your Advisor that meets multiple times per week, helping you flourish at all levels: academically, socially, and personally. You also get the additional support of qualified well-being counselors at our on-campus Health & Wellness Centers.
Wellness takes practice
All students participate in “The Science of Well-being for Teens” curriculum, designed by Yale Professor and EF Academy Advisory Council Member Dr. Laurie Santos, where they build foundational skills that have been proven to affect happiness and well-being.
A daily mentor to help you thrive
To ensure you’re maximizing your experience, you’ll meet almost daily with a faculty advisor and a small group of 8 to 10 students. Your Advisor is great at understanding students at your grade level, helping you master your homework, and offering strategies whenever you need a little extra support. The advisory group is also a time to work on wellness goal-setting, self-care, and healthy relationships.
Helping you get into your dream school
You’re assigned a dedicated University Counselor in year one who gets to know your aspirations, passions, and talents. Through a carefully structured series of one-on-one and group guidance sessions, they help you build a personalized pathway of courses, identify the right universities for you, and craft an impressive application portfolio for admissions officers.
Helping you develop your talents
Doing what you love brings out the very best in you—and our Club and Athletic Coaches love bringing that experience to life for you! So whether that’s the Robotics Club or Basketball Team, Spring Musical, or International Cooking Club, get ready to shine.
Looking after your physical and emotional health
You learn better when you are thriving physically, socially, and emotionally. Our Mental Health Counselor, Well-Being Specialist, and Nurses at our Health & Wellness Center offer expert guidance on how best to minimize stress and focus on well-being. They’re also there for you when you’re feeling unwell or need help getting back into balance.
The reason why this becomes your home-away-from-home
House parents turn our dormitories into homes, bringing warmth, care, and fun to their hall communities. They are there for whatever you need—improving your study habits, engaging in student life, building strong relationships—and they work closely with your Advisor and University Counselor, teaching faculty, and coaches to help you create a network of support. All boarders are assigned to the house parent who lives in their wing. Many of our day students choose to become adopted by a hall community as well!
Where you can be you: your home away from home
Our welcoming campus community empowers you to come as you are and become who you want to be. Together, we create an inclusive environment where everyone feels a sense of belonging.
