Mrs. Courtney Foster
Welcome to my page! My name is Courtney Foster and I am one of the three School Counselors here at Nantucket High School. My caseload consists of students with the last name beginning with GOU-PAR. This is my 7th year working here at NHS!
I grew up in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts and attended Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut where I was a member of the Pioneer Field Hockey team. I was originally planning on becoming a physical therapist, but as many college students end up doing, I changed my major! I have always loved helping people, so it was only natural for me to work with students and their families as they navigate their way through high school! I then attended Springfield College for my Master's degree in School Counseling. After graduating, I worked at Peabody Veteran's Memorial High School for five years before making my way to Nantucket.
I live here with my husband, two young sons, and Golden Retriever, Izzy. I love my job and am happy to be working with the youth of Nantucket! In our office we focus on college, academic, career, and social-emotional counseling. I am also the AP coordinator and facilitate the AP tests in May. I encourage all students and parents to come on in and introduce yourself!
