  • Student Advisory Program

    We are excited to announce Crew – a revitalized, reimagined student advisory program. As Crew members, Upper and Middle School students develop a meaningful and consistent relationship with a single Crew Leader (faculty mentor) that spans classes, activities, divisions, and years. Crews meet in small groups and provide students with opportunities to be uniquely supported as individuals who are well known, well taught, and well-loved. Crew activities and processes are led by trained facilitators and are designed to support students to become independently goal-directed and to develop academic, social, and leadership skills to positively impact the world within and beyond The Master’s School.

  • In addition to our previously announced Suzuki violin classes for Kindergarten-Grade 3 and Suzuki guitar classes for Grades 4-5, we are excited to announce an additional offering made possible as a result of our partnership with the Hartt School of Music Community Division. Students in Grades 4 and 5 will be able to select between guitar and flute as their applied instrument this year. Offering guitar and flute specifically fulfills the General Music curricular goal of developing student’s musical independence on their choice of string or wind instrument. Both guitar and flute classes will give students a solid foundation and experience on the instrument which can become a gateway into other future musical endeavors.
