Counselor Information

  • APA School Counselors

    The role of the school counselor is to be a strong advocate for each of our students and to help them become advocates for themselves. As part of our role as school counselors at APA, we help students development academically and socially while guiding them to become productive, well-adjusted adults in the future. It is our responsibility to help students increase their knowledge about college and career readiness, to have high expectations for all students, and to challenge them accordingly.  At APA we firmly believe that planning for college success starts during the freshman year of high school. We will guide all students to take courses that are appropriate for their goals and interests. We also strongly encourage all students to become involved in extracurricular activities through which they can make important social and community connections.

    Our department is comprised of two school counselors assigned to students by program:
