Who do you want to be?
Your life at the American Academy Larnaca is only the beginning of a series of successes

The driving force behind the Academic Counselling department is our steadfast commitment to helping students reach their true potential and becoming who they want to be. Securing a place at a competitive university is an integral part of this process and this requires much more than good grades in school.

Our Academic Counselling provision aims to provide:

  • impartial advice during subject and career selection
  • essential material and resources
  • guidance during the application processes
  • support during a student’s academic journey – motivating, strengthening, supporting, encouraging

To do this, we make ourselves readily accessible to both students and parents, whilst also delivering a structured higher education and academic counselling provision at key points in our students’ academic careers. The academic landscape is one that is subject to many changes, and as a department we are adaptable and responsive to the changing needs of our students. For these reasons, we strongly encourage everyone to make use of the school’s Academic Counselling resources.

Meet the Team
Counsellor
Litsa Theophylou
A proud graduate of the school, class of 1997, Litsa Theophylou has been serving as the school’s academic counsellor since July 2006. She has been integral in shaping the department’s philosophy, which is to help each student reach his/her potential by engaging with every student on an individual level and providing the specific guidance and support he/she needs. Armed with an abundance of knowledge and skills, acquired through years of service and of attending relevant conferences, she has streamlined the service offered through her department, increased accessibility to students and parents, and has also introduced new processes to meet the needs of students, thus making the American Academy Larnaca the only school in Cyprus offering such a complete university application package. She is the expert for Oxbridge applications, as well as applications for Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science.
Counsellor
Mary Malathoura
Mary Malathoura joined the academic counselling team in September 2012 as a part-time assistant academic counsellor and also teaches Mathematics at the school. Mary’s unique position in getting to know the students first as a teacher and then as a counsellor has allowed the department significant insight into the students’ expectations and needs. She fits excellently with our philosophy of treating each student as an individual, and embodies the students-first ethos of the department. She is a UK graduate, teacher-trained and her previous experience includes teaching Mathematics and ICT in 3 different London based schools.
