ACPA School Counseling

ACPA School Counselors

At ACPA, the school counselors seek to address the academic, college and career, and personal/social needs of students. Every student is capable of succeeding in these three areas, and the counseling program is aimed at identifying barriers to student success and empowering students to overcome those barriers. The school counseling program is consistent with American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model and aligns with the mission and vision of ACPA. We believe students have the right to be safe, to be respected, and to learn at high levels in both art and academic programs.
