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.

BPHS Philosophy Statement:
A comprehensive counseling program is an integral and important part of the overall educational platform at Brooke Point High School. With the growing emphasis on preparing students for success in this complex society, it is imperative all educational institutions plan and implement integrated programs that provide all students an opportunity to grow and succeed. Students mature differently from a point of total family and community dependence to that of independent contributing members of society. The goal of the school counseling program is to create a guided, planned and sequential learning process from which Brooke Point High School students can begin to develop the skills necessary to navigate the world independently and successfully.
