Guidance Counselor

Guidance Counselor

Deborah Brister is the guidance counselor for all grades at Summerlin Academy.  You can contact her through email or phone (863)519-7509.


Email is always the best way to get in contact with me.  If you don’t get a response in 48hrs please send a reminder email due to the mass quantity of emails.

Schedules are complete and school is underway. If you have an issue with your student’s grades/class please contact Mrs. Brister via email/phone for a parent/teacher conference.

Please make sure you are utilizing Parent/Student Portal to check grades, attendance, and discipline frequently to ensure academic success. If you need to sign up for Parent portal please contact Summerlin Main office 519-7504.

Please make sure you ask your English teacher (they have a list) or Mrs. Brister to see if you still need an online class to graduate. Seniors you must complete this course by March in order to graduate on time. That means I need a grade by this month, it does not mean you start it then.

ASVAB is required for all Juniors at Summerlin. This test will be given on TBD at Summerlin during the school day. You can study for this exam via the study guide book given or the website No sign up is needed.

ASVAB will also be available for our Seniors who would like to retake the exam. Seniors only will be given TBD during the school day.

You should have taken the SAT or ACT already. If you have not and you plan on going to college, you must sign up right way. If you have taken the test, I encourage you to retake to better your score. You are shooting for an ACT 26 Composite and SAT 1170 (Reading/Math) for the FMS Bright Futures Scholarship.
