Information from the Counselor’s Office

Welcome to the Counselor’s Webpage. My name is Kathy A. Chalker and I am the Director of Student Services/Counselor at Briarwood Academy. I have put together this information to help you as a student or a parent. Let me first say that some of this information is not my own. I have clipped and pasted from various websites and other counselor sites. I have borrowed ideas and phrases from those who put it a concise way already. Some of the information is taken from the College Board and Georgia Futures websites specifically. Those are two excellent websites with so much more valuable information.

I hope this information will answer some of the questions you may have. Please don’t wait until high school to become familiar with this website. Middle school students need to know what will be required of them once they enter high school.

If you have any questions/concerns please don’t hesitate to email me. That is the best way to get in touch.

Of course you can call me at school-706-595-5641. I have class during 2nd and 4th periods but will get back to you as soon as I can.
