About The Program
The Freshman Mentor Program provides each freshman with a supportive environment that helps ease his or her adjustment from junior high to high school.
The FMP program provides each freshman with:
A freshman advisory that meets four days per week for 20 minutes each day during the freshman’s lunch hour.
A support group in each advisory that consists of student advisors, a faculty advisor, and an academic counselor.
An ongoing orientation to high school that enables students to become familiar with its physical layout, policies, procedures, programs, traditions, and personnel.
A comfortable environment that allows the student to relax during his/her demanding day.
Frequent monitoring of academic progress through individual discussions with a faculty advisor and a counselor.
A mechanism for increasing students awareness regarding academic and co-curricular opportunities.
An opportunity to participate in study teams and/or have access to tutorial assistance.
Articulation of his/her Freshman goals for high school.
Starting with meeting academic counselors in the February of their 8th grade year, through experiencing a co-curricular fair in March, meeting with student FMP advisors in May, and being welcomed to Stevenson at Freshman Orientation Day in August, the Freshman Mentor Program is a comprehensive Transition Program that enables each incoming freshman to feel comfortable and connected to their new Stevenson High School family.
