ATTENTION COLLEGE REPRESENTATIVES! Admission Counselors can now use RepVisits to sign up for visits to St. Thomas Aquinas. Appointments are available Monday through Friday at 2:15, and can be made online at https://counselorcommunity.
The St. Thomas Aquinas School Counseling Department provides guidance and counseling services to all students. As a Catholic, college prep school, two of our goals are to be able to meet the recurrent and spontaneous needs of students, while helping them form their vison for future aspirations.
Dr. Julie Schneider holds her Ph.D. in clinical psychology and brings a wealth of experience in counseling in both the private and public sectors. Her experiences include high school counseling and administration. Well-traveled in South America and other parts of the world, Dr. Schneider holds her Ph.D. and Master of the Arts from the University of Massachusetts Boston, and her Bachelor of Arts, highest honors, from the University of Rhode Island.
Ms. Angela Devoid, a licensed counselor, brings experiences in both the high school and college level, with a particular interest in working with students on their post-secondary searches and plans. She holds a Master of Education from the University of New Hampshire and her Bachelor of Science, summa cum laude, from the University of New England.
School counselors facilitate communication among students, their parents, teachers, and any college or community resource that may assist in furthering a student's growth. St. Thomas Aquinas school counselors follow a general policy of confidentiality with students, except where the welfare of the student or others comes into question. School counselors welcome students to drop in or make appointments.
In addition to keeping their pulse on each child’s overall transition into high school and the subsequent four-year journey, our School Counselors take a very interactive and comprehensive approach to college counseling beginning in grade 9. Grade level meetings with students facilitated by our experienced counselors assist STA students in getting an early start in the college planning process.
