School Counselors

School Counselors - Welcome to Southern!

You provide your students with valuable advice and encouragement, and when your students start "shopping" for colleges, you serve as a primary source of information about the institutions that interest them.  All of us here at Southern want to be a resource for you, so that you have access to the information your students need.

Our Admissions website provides detailed information and instructions regarding the admissions process, while linking you to helpful campus resources such as Financial Aid and Scholarships, Student Life, and academic programs.

Below are some resources specific to your role as School Counselors and College Advisors.  If you are not finding what you need on our website, please don't hesitate to contact me directly at 203-392-5652 or via email:

I hope you will join us for our Counselor Appreciation day, Friday, December 7th! Registration information is below!

Best regards,
Alexis S. Haakonsen
Director of Admissions
