Core Values Education

Middle School AdvisoryAs students move through the Middle School, they begin to discover more about themselves and their roles in the world.

Continuing the Core Values Education begun in the Lower School, Middle School faculty and staff model and teach core values in the classroom as well as in activities at Assemblies and Chapel services, during the Advisory Program, and through community service projects and student organizations.

 

 

Advisory Program

Students are assigned to a faculty Advisor who provides personal guidance throughout the year during weekly small group lessons, individual meetings, and on-going parent communication. Lessons focus on character development, skills to improve academics, community service, embracing diversity, and the importance of emotional and physical health. All of these activities are structured around the needs of the student. The Advisory Program creates a relationship between the student and the Advisor, who often becomes a mentor, an advocate, and a link for students, parents, other teachers, and the Middle School counselor.

Campus & Community Service

Middle School Community Service Animal Defense LeagueMiddle School students are encouraged to step forward and take responsibility to help those in need both on and off campus. Although volunteering isn't a curriculum requirement for Middle School, many of our students take great pride in the service they provide to their city and school. With guidance from the Middle School Community Service Council and the Middle School Parent & Student Community Service Committee, students and parents can volunteer together at locations around the city, including:
  • Haven For Hope 
  • Dress for Success
  • SAMM Ministries

Student Leadership

Students at Saint Mary’s Hall have the opportunity to set themselves apart as leaders in the school community by running for council positions. Membership in the Senate, Community Service Council, or Sports Council is an honor as students are elected by their peers every year. To be elected to a leadership council, students must first excel in both academic and character expectations.
