School Counseling

Your School Counselors are here to help you throughout your high school years. They make sure you are placed in the correct courses while still challenging yourself and working toward your personal and academic goals. They are available for students before school, after school, and during lunch hours. Students should not miss class to meet with their School Counselor unless they receive a pass from their teacher. The School Counselors are also available by appointment for students and parents.

Grade Point Averages (GPAs) will be computed using grades from courses taken at STA and any courses with an appropriate FLDOE number taken during middle school. In addition, this includes any administratively-approved online course.

Florida Virtual School (FLVS)

Each student graduating in 2020 and thereafter must complete one semester (.5 credit) of an approved online course through Florida Virtual School.

Students are encouraged to take electives based on their interests and goals. Electives in the core subject areas (Social Science, Physical Science, English, Math, and World Language) are strongly encouraged. Most colleges and universities prefer students take five core academic courses each year.
