Lisa Simmons
High School Academic Counselor

(619) 772-7743

Lisa holds a Bachelor’s degree in Human Development and a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. She earned her degree and credential from San Diego Christian College. After working with Julian Charter School for four years she continued her education at National University earning her Master’s degree in School Counseling with a Pupil Personnel credential. Lisa also holds a certificate in college and career counseling from UCLA. She has worked with Julian Charter School since 2002, first as an education facilitator before moving into the academic counselor position.

One of Lisa’s favorite things to do is help students with college and career planning. She is a strong advocate of career and technical education CTE. She believes that not all students have the desire to go to a 4-year college and may instead prefer a technical education. Her objective as an academic counselor is to help students plan the college or career path that allows them to reach their post high school goals.
