Advisory is an integral part of life at Brandon Hall. Advisors assist students in navigating their life at school, and in helping each individual to find their own path and develop the skills necessary to lead. Advisory groups consist of two advisors with 6-12 students. Advisory groups meet once a week to more deeply explore and engage with the Panther Pillars. Through connection, discussion, and reflection both as an advisory group and individually with advisors, students are able to experience and act on each of the pillars in the school community and beyond.


All-school assemblies are held every Friday for approximately 40 minutes. During these times, the entire school comes together as one community to make announcements and welcome guest speakers.
