Student Advisory Program

Your experience at Gould Academy goes beyond the classroom. So does the role of our faculty, as they are a key part of Gould’s Advisory Program.

Our advisors are one of the most important aspects of the Gould experience for both students and their families. For the student, their advisor is a personal guide – someone who often shares similar interests, and is a mentor, someone who helps both with academic decisions and life events.

For family members, their student’s advisor becomes the point person for all information related to their student’s experience at Gould – from academics and athletics to social issues or special interests. Without a doubt, this person becomes your most important connection with your student and the school.

Students spend time with their advisor as part of an advisee group every day. Sometimes these meetings take place in Bingham Auditorium for morning assembly, while other times it means gathering for special dinners and activities. The advisor/advisee relationship is the cornerstone of a student’s Gould experience and their success.
