Mrs. Nichole Deakins
I am the College & Career Counselor at all three academy schools (Central, Eagle, & Meridian). This is my 15th year as a school counselor and my 12th year in the West Ada School District.
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 now stay very busy with our three daughters’ sporting events – lacrosse, basketball, & volleyball – and their never-ending social calendars!
I’m so thankful that the West Ada school district has reinstated College & Career Counselors in the high schools. It is a privilege and a joy to help direct students and encourage them in their future endeavors. I have the best job!
Looking forward to meeting and working with all our Academy families. 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!
