Welcome to the AHS Counselor’s Corner!


Karen Sams – Junior/Senior Counselor

Whitney Adams – Freshmen/Sophomore Counselor

Linda Ware – Registrar/Counselor Assistant

College Preparation:

Each junior and senior is allowed two "college days" per year. When you visit a college, just have them give a note to you stating that you were there for a visit. When you return to school give the note to Mrs. Jordan, the attendance clerk, in the main office and your absence will be excused.

Once a student submits an application to a college they need to email Mrs. Ware at and request her to send an “Official Transcript” to the college. This transcript includes grades and credits, rank and GPA as well as EOC results and ACT scores.

After graduation we will send your final, official transcript to the college or university you plan to attend. Remember if you have taken dual credit classes you will need to request your transcript from Texarkana College to be sent also. You can do so by going to the Texarkana College website.


We post regularly on Google Classroom.  Students should check it daily.  Parents, you can ask your student to send you an inviation to Google Classroom as well!  We will post all scholarship opportunities, as well as other important announcements.  

Seniors, please go to (or scan the QR code) for information from Balfour regarding: senior items, caps and gowns. graduation rings and letter jackets.

We are excited about your future!
