Every student at R-MA is assigned to a faculty or staff mentor, who provides the student with guidance and support throughout the school year.
The mentor functions as the contact person for the family with any questions or concerns that arise while the student is at the Academy. The mentor also serves as the advocate for students on campus and will work to coordinate action-plans with each student for their academic and social achievement.
Mentors meet with their students each week for a weekly lunch and a forty-five minute mentoring session. Additionally, mentors may take students to off-campus lunches or dinners at least once a semester. Beyond the scheduled times, mentors work with their students to determine their class schedules for the next year and are instrumental in college advising and discussion on the character issues and time-management issues that may arise for the student.
