Counselors' Corner

2023 - 2024 registration is complete!

IF your student missed doing their registration for next year's classes, please make sure they make an appointment with their counselor ASAP to complete this. If they fail to complete this, counselors will make elective choices for the student.


Attention 8th grade parents - your students will complete their pre-ID registration with the counselors on Thursday, 4/6 in their math classes. IT IS IMPERATIVE that they are in attendance to do this. The PSAT 8 test will be given on Wednesday, 4/12, & we will NOT have time to complete pre-ID tasks on the day of testing.

If your student needs support, please contact their AGS School Counselor. We are happy to help.

Mrs. Melissa Welsh - last names A - O -

Ms. Tiffany Peeler - last names P - Z -
