Each student at Hebron Academy is assigned an advisor who serves as the point person for the student’s academic, social, and behavioral growth. Advisors are assigned in August each year. Each advisory group has a maximum of eight students. Middle and Upper School advisors meet with their advisees every week. Parents receive their first communication from their child’s advisor at the start of school and have an opportunity to meet the advisor during registration. After the first week of classes, advisors contact parents to touch base on each student’s adjustment.
Each class has two faculty advisors who work with that class throughout its four years at Hebron. Class advisors serve as a resource for class officers and help guide their progress towards the class goals, spirit, service, and fundraising.
Formal college counseling begins in the junior year with an introduction to the steps needed to ensure a smooth and well-organized college search. Each junior meets individually with their college counselor during the winter and spring terms. They also participate in meetings focused on topics such as writing the college application essay, the college campus visit and interview, standardized testing, and submitting the completed college application. In addition, a workshop for parents of juniors is held at Hebron in February.
Each year, Hebron Academy serves as a testing center for some administrations of the PSAT, SAT, ACT, and TOEFL.
