This year the Mar Vista Academy faculty has decided to change how they offer Advisory. In staying true to the ongoing mission of Mar Vista Academy to ENGAGE, EDUCATE, and EMPOWER, Advisory is now home to Student Interest Groups (SIGs). Student Interest Groups are intended to give students the opportunity to meet with other students around a common interest. We matched each of the student interest with a teacher who also shares the student passion. We know not all learning happens in the classroom, and not all learning happens from books or lectures; with SIGs, our passions will guide our interests and our interest will guide our education.
