Simply put, advisory is the heart of what we do at Capital High. Our students will not graduate prepared to succeed on their individual pathway without a brave space where they are valued, appreciated and needed. We recognize and honor the brilliance and beauty of all our students, but most especially our students of color. Recognizing and uplifting the brilliance and beauty of our black and brown children is at the center of anti-racist teaching. This is at the center of advisory.
Capital High is dedicated to developing personalized learning opportunities that are aligned to individual student’s interests and passions. Advisories are the core organizational structure for personalized learning and the way in which all students are supported on their pathways to graduation and post-secondary options. In advisory, students develop an individual learning plan to set academic as well as social/emotional goals. Through periodic check-ins with their advisor, student-led conferences, and portfolio defenses, students have multiple opportunities to nurture their curiosities, plan their learning experiences, take risks, and reflect on their progress.
