Say Hello to Your
Academic Support System

Advisors are mentors, friends, and partners, every step of the way.

Whether you hail from the suburbs of Boston, the streets of Paris, or a village in the Sahara, your academic advisor will take the time to get to know your unique background and personality as well as your academic goals.

Through frequent one-on-one meetings with you, your teachers, and your parents or guardians back home, your advisor will help you determine your strengths, interests, and areas for improvement. Falling in love with physics? Your advisor will encourage you to find more advanced work or create an independent study. Having trouble in Spanish? He or she will arrange tutoring. 

Your advisor serves as a dedicated contact for your parents or guardians, helping you keep them up-to-date on your progress in school and life. When the people who raised you are as far as a dozen time zones away, you’ll have someone on your side as you transition to life (and high school) abroad. Living apart from your parents, your home, and the friends you grew up with isn’t always easy – whether you need advice, a pep talk, or just a friendly ear, enjoy the peace of mind in knowing someone will be there.
