In addition, the academic advisement meeting focuses on communication skills, motivation, maturity, and the ability to conduct oneself with responsibility, integrity, and accountability.

Penrose Academy provides academic advisement services to support and assist prospective students in planning for the occupational program they seek to pursue.
