Counseling is one of ASTI's greatest assets and strengths.   Over the course of four years students interact with the counselor through whole-class presentations in the evening, classroom presentations/drop-ins, and individual meetings.  As a student progresses, these interactions become increasingly focused on the college application process. Focus topics include the personal statement, financial aid/scholarships, eligibility requirements, SAT/ACT exams, and many more.

The counselor is also available to students for all other personal, social, and academic concerns.  Students utilize the counselor as a source of support, understanding, and advocacy during times of personal distress.  The counselor coordinates COST referrals and interventions, 504 meetings, SST meetings, and other student supports and enlists the collaboration of parents/guardians.
