As a school, Cushing Academy is dedicated to educating the whole child; therefore, we have created a web of support that includes the whole community. Both students and adults are available to help meet the needs of individuals in a variety of areas. In particular, students will be assigned a faculty advisor to help them navigate their time at Cushing. Of course, students may also call on the support of many other adults—including teachers, coaches, and administrators—at any time.
Every student at Cushing is assigned a faculty advisor. This relationship provides Cushing students with the support and encouragement that will help them achieve their fullest potential. Advisors serve as a point-person on campus for her/his advisees. Advisors touch base with their advisees weekly, and they often gather their advisory group (5-6 students per group) for conversation, dinner, or special events. Parents/guardians with questions and/or thoughts regarding their child should feel free to contact their child’s advisor.
