During the school year, the counselors have
group meetings and individual conferences to address the issues of each
year of high school and help students make good decisions.
Counselors meet with juniors and seniors regularly to begin the college and/or career
orientation process. They provide support to all students throughout the
year, and have a wealth of information that will help students plan
their future. Our counselors are also adept at helping students through personal and family crisis.
Students should feel
free to make appointments with their
counselor when they need advice on any problem, academic or personal.
Parents/guardians are also welcome to
make appointments to discuss our programs or concerns about
your child. We look forward to working with you during these exciting years!
Each student is assigned to a counselor upon enrollment. After the first year, students will be working with the same counselor for the remaining time at AHS.
In addition to the counselors listed below, feel free to reach out to our Career Specialist, Mr. Bobby Everage, our Guidance Secretary, Mrs. Theresa Collins, or our Guidance Clerk, Mrs. Kathy Mueller.
