Advisory Program

CTRA’s Advisory Program

The primary role of Advisory at CTRA is to delve deeply into our values of awareness, diversity, and action while strengthening relationships. Advisory is a process, not a product. Activities should support the academic, career, and social/emotional growth of young adults. Advisors and advisees have autonomy to create unique programming while completing benchmark experiences (see grade level guiding questions/benchmarks listed below) and building relationships. The following questions and magnet standard benchmarks will guide the personal growth of scholars and development of a meaningful Student Success Plan (see CT State Department of Education for more information).
