Meet Morgan Ramsey

Manager of Counseling Services

Morgan Ramsey is the manager of counseling services at Arkansas Connections Academy (ARCA). She earned her bachelor’s degree from Missouri Southern State University and her master’s in school counseling from Missouri Baptist University.

Ms. Ramsey recently moved to Arkansas. She began working at ARCA in 2017. She says, “My favorite thing to do is to help students recognize their skills and their potential to be amazing. In my position, I am lucky, because I get to work one-on-one with students and really help them set goals, work toward those goals, and achieve those goals.”

Ms. Ramsey thinks that working at ARCA is special because she gets to help students learn at their own pace. Also, she loves how the curriculum is tailored to each student. “We get to think outside the box at ARCA and help students learn in so many ways that aren’t always possible in a traditional school setting.”

In her free time, Ms. Ramsey enjoys traveling with her family, watching football, running in marathons, and exploring new places and cultures.
