The Advisor Program is truly one of the hallmark programs at CRMS. At CRMS, every student has a faculty advisor who serves as his or her advocate for the time they are at CRMS. Because the advisors’ main purpose is to guide their advisees (and parents) through life at CRMS, long-lasting relationships are often developed.
The Advisor Program aims to develop the character of each student at CRMS. This is achieved through the meaningful relationships that develop and through the meetings that routinely challenge advisees to define themselves and what they stand for. Advisees formally meet with their advisors multiple times a week: in Advisee Meeting, in All-School Meeting, and during Formal Dinners and meetings. New students may even have their advisor as their Wilderness Trip Leader. Starting a trip with the adult who will be the student’s main on-campus supporter is a meaningful way to develop a rapport with an advisor. Informally, advisees and their advisors see each other throughout the week. It is not uncommon that advisees interact with their advisors in the classroom, in the dormitories, or at a game or performance where their advisor has come to cheer them on.
"Being an advisor is like being a second parent to eight extra teenagers. I support my students every step of the way from the
first day of wilderness to graduation. I am always there to offer guidance, hold them accountable, and feed them doughnuts
when they need a boost."
Dave Meyer, History Faculty/Advisor
