The advisory is the main academic center at The Met. Students stay in the same advisory for all four years with the same group of students and the same advisor (teacher). Advisors find educational resources for the students, assist them to target key academic learning goals, work with mentors to ensure the rigor of internships, and actively involves parents in their student's education. Advisors build a safe and caring learning environment for their students by planning school-wide and advisory events together, critiquing each other's work, providing feedback at students' quarterly exhibitions and assisting students in achieving their academic and learning goals. The advisory is more than just another classroom. Many students describe it as their second family.
