Counseling News and Information

Welcome to Counseling!

Counselors are assigned to alphabetical caseloads, based on students' last names.  This allows us to work with the same students during all four years of high school and to provide more appropriate information on an individual basis.  Counselors are available to help with scheduling issues, academic assistance, career planning, college planning, records management and personal issues.  We are
located near Commons II.​ Follow us on twitter @BPHSCounseling
