In order to foster the development of meaningful relationships which support student success, every TvF student belongs to an advisory of about 15 students. In addition to providing a forum for positive peer group recognition, supporting the social and emotional development of students, and building a sense of community, advisors advocate for their students at TvF and beyond. Advisories meet 4 times a week to monitor and support students' progress. As the point-person, the advisor communicates regularly with parents to coordinate efforts between the school and home to support academic success. Advisors also facilitate conferences with the parents and students four times a year, at the middle and end of both semesters.
