Peer Mentoring Program
Mentoring programs have been found to have a positive effect on student achievement and personal growth. Every new student to our SPA family is matched with an upperclassman who serves as a mentor, helping him/her acclimate to the school.
Each spring, rising juniors and seniors have the opportunity to apply to be a Peer Mentor. After a thorough application process, students are chosen to serve as mentors, meeting regularly with their "mentee" to provide friendship, support, advice, and advocacy.
