About the Counseling Center

The BH-BL High School Counseling Center provides a comprehensive school counseling program and a holistic approach to working with high school students. As vital members of the educational team, school counselors help students in areas of academic achievement, career exploration and social emotional development. The counselors provide individual academic planning and goal setting; post secondary exploration including higher education, military or entrance to the workforce; and collaboration with families, teachers, administrators, and community members to promote student success.

Counselors are student advocates, resources of information, and a supportive presences in the school environment. The goal of the school counseling team is to contribute to the academic, social, and career development of students as they transition from teenagers to well-rounded, productive adults.
