Meet your Counselor:

Stephen Uphus (9-12 Grade Counselor at BA)

My name is Stephen Uphus and I am excited to be back at BA for my second year this year! I am looking forward to advancing the counseling program forward and expanding the curriculum. As a school counselor I get to work with kids on a variety of different things, ranging from social & emotional needs to career exploration & academic support.

My hours are from 7:30am-3:30pm. Be sure to check out the BA web page - find information for career/college exploration, crisis/help, and parenting resources to name just a few of the things you can find there.

I can be reached by email at or by phone at 507-334-3948, ext. 217. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions.
