Counseling Team

Alissa Kruse, School Counselor


Hello and welcome to the Venture Counseling page.  I’ve been blessed to be part of Venture since 2015, and working with so many wonderful professionals.  Helping students figure out how independent study can work for them is a really fun part of my job.  It’s great to see students thriving in this alternative environment.  Before Venture, I worked overseas at international schools in China, South Korea, and Hong Kong.  Traveling and interacting with different cultures is a favorite pastime of mine along with biking, hiking, yoga, and my dog Toffee.  If our paths cross, I look forward to meeting you and seeing how independent study can work for you. Venture School Counselor
