Guidance News

Welcome to the Ansonia guidance page!  My name is Matt Sutter, and I am the guidance counselor for all students k-12.  As the guidance counselor, it is my goal to be a support system for students as they encounter academic obstacles, career exploration questions, college and financial aid questions, and emotional needs.  

Within this page you will find monthly scholarship packets, testing dates, forms, along with other valuable information.  If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to stop in the office, call at 937-337-5591 ext. 2117, or email at matt.sutter@ansoniaschools.org
