Mentor Groups

Mentor Groups Are the Heart of the House System

Mentor Groups consist of 16-20 students from each grade level meeting with each other and a teacher daily. Each student is assigned a House and then a Mentor Group upon entering our school and they will remain with that school until graduation. The purpose of Mentor Groups is to foster relationships across grade levels and with a teacher who will see you consistently throughout your time at Bishop Hartley; moreover, upperclassmen mentor underclassmen. Lastly, each group has leaders to help guide the year's activities and group.
