At Lake Mary Preparatory School, we believe that advisory classes and character development are both important aspects of young adults social and emotional development. These classes are held weekly and follow a written curriculum with a focus on the character development of our students. What sets LMP apart from other schools is the one-on-one support we offer our students both academically and socially. This support comes from our teachers and administrators. Our advisory class environment, which is informal, fosters these student/faculty relationships.
At Lake Mary Preparatory Upper School, each student is assigned an advisor who assists the student in achieving their academic and personal goals. These weekly meetings supply built-in peer groups for all students in the Upper School. Second, it gives students an advisor who knows them well and who can offer advocacy and support in difficult social and academic situations. The advisor follows the student through all four years of Upper School. Ideally, the advisory teacher is someone the student knows he or she can trust and talk to about their progress and position in the school. The advisor also acts as a liaison between the students’ teachers and parents.
