Adult support and encouragement of our students is vital to their success. A team of at least two adults is gathered around each student to encourage his or her progress and to integrate with the students’ experience in the school.
Purpose & Duties of Sponsors
Purpose: The purpose for sponsors is twofold. Each student needs individual support and encouragement. Also Sponsors are an important source of support for the school.
1) Each student is required to have at least 2 active sponsors from among family or other important adults in his or her life.
2) Each sponsor is to fill out a form of sponsorship and attend an interview with a student at the school.
3) A student’s sponsors are expected to meet with the student once each week, to be in regular contact with the school, to attend sponsor meetings and school events, and provide support to the student and the school.
4) If a student has difficulty in locating sponsors, then the school will assist the student in finding adults to fill this role.
“There is no such thing as a ‘self-made’ man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success.”
–George Matthew Adams
