Academic Advising

Each ANC student will have an academic advisor who will monitor the student’s academic progress and serve as a link between the student, other faculty members, and parents. Parents should contact their student's academic advisor with any question or concerns regarding his/her education.

School Chaplain

The Rev. Barry Halterman serves as Chaplain for the ANC Secondary Schools. Rev. Halterman is available to each student for any personal and confidential counseling.

Personal Counseling

Through the Growth Opportunity Center, a trained professional counselor can be available to any student who desires counseling from someone other than an ANC staff member. This is an important service since some students do desire complete confidentiality and are reluctant to use priests, faculty, or other staff members. The Growth Opportunity Center has been associated with the Bryn Athyn community for over thirty years, and the staff will not counsel students outside of our fundamental beliefs. Short term counseling is free for students and parents. The contact number is 215-947-8117. If you prefer that your child not be involved with the Growth Opportunity Center, please contact ANC with either a phone call or written message. ANC staff will instruct the Growth Opportunity Center not to accept the contact.

Depending on availability, staff from the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit may provide personal and/or educational counseling during school hours
