Kimi Cain is our full time counselor for Academy Online High School. We also have a part time college and career counselor, Gary Savoren.  The counseling office is located at AOHS offices at the Center for Modern Learning.  

Parents and students are encouraged to e-mail or call with questions and/or to schedule an appointment. If you have a general question or concern, the most expedient way to communicate is through email: Kimi.cain@asd20.org. You can also contact  a counselor by phone and voicemail at 234-1671 during the school year. 

Mrs. Cain and Mr. Savoren follow the American School Counseling Associations (ASCA) ethical guidelines.  Our counselors support students' Academic, Social/Emotional, and College/ Career needs.  Student confidentiality is maintained unless the disclosure is in regards to the welfare and safety of the student or potential harm to others.  Information will then be shared with parents/guardians or other appropriate agency without the students' consent.  Please do not hesitate to contact our counselors if you have specific questions or concerns regarding student confidentiality.
