A framework of academic and personal support exists at Nichols, affording students the individual consideration that distinguishes a Nichols education. Most advising at Nichols happens informally, as students seek out trusted adults for questions, concerns and conversation. The formal advising systems in the Upper and Middle Schools exist to ensure that our students have ample contact with their advisors, and advisors have ample opportunity to address a student’s concerns. Frequent contact between deans and students, advisors and advisees, and parents and teachers makes certain that all Nichols students are cared for and supported.
