Mrs. Nichole Deakins

I am the College & Career Counselor at all three academy schools (Eagle, Meridian, & Central). I was born and raised in the Eagle-Star area.  After high school, I attended Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and played collegiate basketball.  I then came back to Idaho to complete a Master’s degree in Counseling at Northwest Nazarene University where I met my husband, Brent.  We have three daughters - one who attends Westmont College, another one who attends Grand Canyon University, and our youngest is at Eagle High School. Our summer occupation is fishing in Alaska for Sockeye salmon. I am always available to swap fishing stories!

It is a privilege and a joy to guide students toward their future endeavors and help give students a vision of what could be! 

Looking forward to working with all our Academy families this year.  It is a part time position. I am at Eagle Academy on Tuesdays, Meridian Academy on Wednesdays, and Central Academy on Thursdays.  The best way to contact me is through email.  Please let me know how I can assist you or your student this year!
