The 2019-2020 school year marked the start of the XIS handcrafted Advisory Program for 6th-12th grade students. The goal of Advisory is to get students connected with XIS staff in order to help in the development of the whole child. Every week, during the first 10 minutes of school, students go through the XIS created Advisory Workbook with their small group and staff member. Various topics are covered including: career and college planning, emotional health and well-being, developing healthy hobbies and activities, the harm and help of technology, ways and methods to reduce stress, as well as so much more.

Even though XIS is highly devoted to academic success, we know our students are so much more than a grade and so, by daily checking-in and connecting with our students, our students will develop holistically.
