The counseling department’s mission is to create and sustain an effective comprehensive counseling and guidance program which addresses each students’ social/emotional and academic needs. Services include group and individual counseling, academic support, classroom guidance, crisis intervention, career and college planning and student and family advocacy. My goal is to help students become lifelong learners and responsible productive citizens by promoting their personal growth and academic development.
At ACS we believe in catering to the whole student, not just their academics. Each year we bring in character education programs that teach our students the value of empathy, kindness and compassion. Our goal is to create an environment where students feel safe, loved and appreciated.
