9th Grade

9th grade school counselors

(L to R) School Counselors December Heffernan, Dana Merise, Kathleen Machnik and Tyler Burley.

It is our pleasure to welcome the Class of 2024 to NFA. Your first year of high school is an exciting time, but it can also be challenging and a bit scary. As your school counselors, we look forward to working with you as you explore new subjects, get involved in your school and community, and investigate different interests and career pathways.  

Your freshman year is one of the most important years you’ll experience because it is the foundation for everything to come and we have various lessons planned to help you get ready and excited about coming to NFA.

This is a big change for many of you, but we want to reassure you that your school counselors are here to help you achieve success your freshman year!
