Croton-Harmon Advisory Program (CHAP)
CHAP Mission Statement
All students and faculty participate in the Croton-Harmon Advisory Program one period per cycle. Groups of 12-15 students meet with a staff member to discuss individual and/or school wide issues. Occasionally, class meetings and special assemblies are held during this time. The CHAP program is designed to:
- Be a consistent home base for students. The advisory program allows students to form a relationship with a faculty member in a non-traditional fashion. Students remain with their CHAP teacher throughout their entire high school career.
- Help students adjust to school by addressing any grade level issues that may arise during the course of the year.
- Build community among students and faculty. This is accomplished by encouraging a sense of belonging and mutual respect among students and faculty alike.
The program allows advisors to support students in a proactive, organized way. Teachers play a strategic role in the students’ education; helping them to develop skills that will enable them to meet the responsibility and challenges that lie ahead of them.
