Guidance Department

Welcome to the LaGuardia Arts Guidance Department.

ShelliAnn Williams, Assistant Principal, Guidance
Students are assigned to a Guidance Counselor based on the student's grade level and studio. We do this so families can receive support that is specific to their needs.
 
If you have a new Guidance Counselor, they will collaborate with your former Guidance Counselor to support your success. 
 
Below please find a table of Guidance Counselors broken down by studio and grade.  
 
During this period of Remote Learning, in person meetings are not possible.  Please email your Guidance Counselor to set up a virtual meting.
