De Smet School Counseling

 About me!

Meet Mr. Julius


My name is Kyler Julius, I am the K-12 School Counselor here at De Smet. My goal is to assist these students in all of their academic, career, and social/emotional needs.

Before arriving in De Smet, I attended South Dakota State University where I earned a Bachelor in Science degree for Human Development and Family Studies, and a Master Degree in Science for Counseling and Human Resource Development with a specialization in School Counseling.

Some personal information about me. I have four amazing siblings. I am the baby of five total children including my sister Karissa, brother Jordan, sister Kayla, and my brother Cole. I am an uncle to six nieces and nephews. Karissa has three children, Emily Jo, Jamison, and Collin. Jordan has a daughter Evelyn, Kayla has her son Leo, and Cole and his wife Summer recently welcomed a new child into the family with their son Grady.

Some of my hobbies include golfing, water skiing, fishing, and watching all of my favorite sports teams, the Minnesota Twins, Wild, and Vikings. I also enjoy Hiking when I get the time to travel, and one of my favorite things to do is go Cliff Jumping in the Black Hills at Lake Pactola.  

If you would like to set up a meeting with me, student or parent, please feel free to email me at or call me here at the school (605) 854-3674, ext. 4
