Welcome to the BHS School Counseling Office! 

The BHS School Counseling Department adheres to the American School Counselor Association's (ASCA) National Model for School Counseling. A formal curriculum is delivered and services are provided to meet students' needs within the Academic, Career, and Personal/Social Domains.

Students and parents are encouraged to access the many resources available through the Counseling Department.

Scholarship information will soon be available through Xello, too.

Scheduling Updates 

We would like to provide an update on the 2023-2024 scheduling process based on the communication from last week (Tuesday, March 7, 2023).  Through an in-depth analysis of student needs associated with the scheduling process, the BHS Administration and BHS School Counselors decided that we would provide more structure to meet these needs.    


To date:


  • Students, school counselors and teachers communicated about course requests for the 2023-2024 academic year.

  • Students submitted 2023-2024 course requests in Skyward during their homeroom period.

  • The BHS Administration and BHS School Counselors worked, and continue to work, to create a schedule that is optimal for accommodating student needs and requests.


Moving forward, here is the outline of the 2023-2024 scheduling process:

  • Students WILL NOT have to work further to create a period by period schedule in Skyward.  Student requests will be the driving factor in the creation of an optimal schedule for all students. 

  • The BHS Administration and BHS School Counselors will continue to work with student requests to analyze and adjust the 2023-2024 master schedule and individual student schedules.

  • Over the course of the next two months, students will be provided with a 2023-2024 schedule.  At that time, students will have the opportunity to meet with their school counselor to discuss any potential changes if necessary.


Please be flexible, patient and understanding as we work to solidify the scheduling process.


At any time, you can reach out to any member of the BHS Administration and BHS School Counseling Office.  We will work together to make the 2023-2024 academic year a success.





BHS 2023-2024  Scheduling Process

School Counselors have been meeting with students through homeroom classes to share information on graduation requirements, the BHS course catalog, and the scheduling process.  Below is the timeline for scheduling this year, which includes updated arena scheduling dates, which are bolded below.  Each grade level will have one day to complete their arena scheduling process.  The school schedule will be adjusted to allow for an extended homeroom period to give students the opportunity to complete their scheduling during the school day.  Current seniors homeroom classes will partner with lower grade levels to assist with the arena scheduling process during this time.  

In addition, the BHS Course Catalog and BHS Scheduling Guide form are linked here.  All of this information, as well as recordings of the school counseling scheduling meetings, can be found on the School Counseling Canvas pages.  If students have questions or concerns, please reach out via email or set up an appointment.
