Students work closely with a faculty advisor throughout their time at WRA. Advisors serve as mentors to students, modeling and interpreting for all students the school's mission of excellence, integrity and compassion. They are the primary contact between the school and parents for their advisees. They facilitate the transition into the WRA experience, helping to clarify the goals and expectations of the school, and continue to play an active role in the student's academic, social, residential, extracurricular activities and daily life.
With nearly 80 percent of our faculty living on campus, WRA teachers are the heart and soul of our community. They are mentors and advocates for our students, offering after-hours support to students in and out of the classroom. Faculty members also serve as advisors, dorm heads and coaches, giving students the chance to form meaningful connections with their instructors.
