WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
Every student at BA is assigned an advisory group that meets weekly and serves as a space for your student to grow individually while building meaningful relationships with peers and faculty. The three main goals of advisory time are group bonding, faith-building, and character development.
In middle school, advisory groups are made of all-boy or all-girl students in the same grade. Every year, middle school students will receive a new advisory group placement. This allows students to have the opportunity to form relationships with more people in their grade as they move through these foundational years.
In upper school, the advisory experience will shift. Upper school advisory groups are divided by gender but are comprised of students from each grade, 9th-12th. Students will keep the same general group and advisor for their life-cycle in the upper school. This allows the crucial elements of leadership, discipleship, and mentorship to organically arise between students. It also gives each student an advisor that will follow and support them throughout their upper school experience at BA.
Advisory groups are a long-standing tradition that are vital to our mission of nurturing and challenging each whole person – body, mind, and spirit – to the glory of God.
