A Message from the Counselors
Summit Academy High School recognizes the many needs that young people have today. Growing up is a challenging and often trying experience, and we are fully aware that our students have no social immunity to the dilemmas that face any teenager.
Counselors are available on campus throughout the day. The counseling program fosters the values that enable our youth to understand themselves and others. We encourage our students to assume personal responsibility for their behavior as well as for their intellectual growth and development in keeping with their talents and abilities.
Our curriculum is geared to the physical and mental development of the adolescent. The counselors make an effort to see all students at various times during the school year. A student may request an appointment with his/her counselor by either stopping by their counselor or requesting a time with the office. There is also an anonymous box outside of College and Career Center for student notes to the counselors which is checked daily.
Our counselors are experienced teachers with expertise in various specialized areas. The department offers guidance primarily in academics. In addition, counselors can help students gain information about careers and colleges, scholarships, and financial aid for higher education.
