Counseling Staff Philosophy
The Brentwood High School Counseling Department is dedicated to assisting all our students in reaching their full potential. BHS strives to educate the whole student, creating life-long learners and seekers of excellence. In support of this mission, the Brentwood High School Counseling program is designed to address the needs of all students by helping them to acquire competencies in career planning and exploration, knowledge of self and others, and educational and vocational development through individual planning, counseling curriculum, responsive services and individual counseling, and support services.
Through the Counseling Center, students can draw on various resources, including frequent visits by college representatives, a library of college guides, scholarship information, financial aid, and standardized testing. Programs sponsored by the Counseling Center include Williamson County College Fair, Financial Aid Night, BHS College Night and relevant grade level, informational classroom presentations.
Each counselor works with students in acquiring guidance competencies that form the foundation for their next steps educationally and occupationally. They assist students in developing realistic educational and career plans based on a clear understanding of themselves, their needs, interests, skills, and the realities and possibilities of the worlds of education at work.
