PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT & SYSTEM SUPPORT
The advisory curriculum aims to deliver semi-structured developmental lessons designed to assist students in achieving desired competencies in areas directly related to personal, social and emotional wellbeing. The advisory curriculum is infused throughout the school’s overall curriculum and is presented systematically through small classroom groups involving individual student planning and group inclusion activities. The advisory curriculum is an ongoing and collaborative effort to create a systemic avenue for students to achieve advancements in their social emotional intelligence. It is aligned and cross-referenced with the IB Learner Profile standards and LJA's vision for students' academic, social and emotional achievement. The school counselor contributes to the advisory curriculum's delivery through: advisory instruction; advisory curriculum development; group work; teacher, parent, and admin consultation; and transition support.
