Advisor Program

Every Darrow student has a faculty advisor who not only helps the student navigate all sorts of academic and personal challenges, but also corresponds with parents to let them know how their son or daughter is doing in all aspects of Darrow life. Faculty advisors provide a connection between parents and the school community.  A Darrow advisor is a mentor, counselor, and confidante all rolled into one. The advisor is there to celebrate the student’s successes, as well as help each of them learn from their mistakes and failures. Advisors also are very aware of a student’s involvement outside the classroom. Students check in with their advisors at Morning Meetings, have lunch with them every Friday, and spend time with them in class, in the dorms, in the theater, or at practice.
