School Counselors

School counselors are an important part of the educational leadership team and provide valuable assistance to students regardless of their assigned grade level. Our dedicated counselors spend the majority of time in direct contact with our students. This is extremely important. High school is the final transition into adulthood and the world of work as students begin separating from parents and exploring and defining their independence. Students are deciding who they are, what they do well, and what they will do when they graduate. Our counseling staff understands this transition. During these adolescent years, students are evaluating their strengths, skills and abilities. Our AHS counselors are devoted to helping our students navigate through what could become a very turbulent time in a student's life to ensure students reach academic goals and graduation successfully.

Dear Parents and Students,

We know that this can be a difficult time for all of you and we want you to know that we are in this together!  While the way in which we interact may have changed, our commitment to our students and their overall well-being and success has not.  Below you will find the contact information for each counselor.  Counselors are available Monday-Friday, 8:00-3:30 via email and will do our best to get back to you within 24 working hours.

This is unchartered territory for all of us so please be patient as we navigate this situation and know that we will be here to help you in any way we can.  Your school counselors are working together to figure out new ways to reach our students and to get information out to you all. We miss all of our students and we hope to be back to campus soon!  Until then, take care and stay healthy.  Fins up!
