South Texas ISD Science Academy
Science Academy Counseling Department Mission
Science Academy counselors invest our time to ensure that our students excel in-and-out of the classroom, by providing mentoring opportunities to provide the academic assistance needed to tackle STISD's challenging course curriculum.
Counselors provide social and personal guidance in addition to assisting students as they plan for post-secondary success and are prepared to lead at the collegiate level and in their future careers once they graduate.
Feel free to reach out to us via email.
