Upper School

Broadwater Academy’s Upper School is comprised of students in Grades Nine through Twelve. The Upper School program provides opportunities for students to acquire the knowledge and the skills necessary for success in higher education. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of the educational opportunities afforded by a broad liberal arts offering and a capable faculty dedicated to helping students achieve their potential. Each student has a faculty advisor who follows the student’s academic progress, guiding the student in establishing and achieving appropriate goals.

Faculty advisors, classroom teachers, and the administration of the Upper School continuously work to enhance communication with parents. Organizations, including academic and service clubs, student publications, music and theatrical groups, and school government, provide additional opportunities for student involvement. Interscholastic athletic and club sports programs provide opportunities for students to acquire skills and experience team play. Broadwater Upper School students are required to participate in supervised service activities that make significant contributions to the Eastern Shore community (see Viking Volunteer Program). The Student Council participates in the formulation of procedures and regulations followed in the Upper School. This group also serves as the Honor Council, with the responsibility of educating students on matters pertaining to the operation of the Honor Code.

Broadwater’s Faculty Advisory Program helps students make the adjustment to Upper School. Students meet, in small groups, on a weekly basis with their assigned faculty member to discuss a myriad of topics.
