Welcome to the BHS School Counseling Webpage! Our staff works with all students in career and college planning, academic planning, new student information, and social-emotional concerns. Our goal is that all students graduate from Burlington High School well-prepared for success in their post-high school plan. Our students pursue many different paths after high school, including Armed Services enlistment, college, work, gap year, technical programs and beyond.
Please email your school counselor to schedule a meeting or with any questions or concerns. If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, contact First Call at (802) 488-7777.

BHS School Counselor Roles
Academic Planning: Counselors assist students in developing a course of study appropriate to student’s level, interest, and possible career path.
Post High School Planning: Counselors assist students in gaining knowledge about their own interests and skills by making use of assessments (skills and knowledge inventories, personality type/learning style assessors, etc.), use of the technology-based program Naviance, and individual counseling to develop an ongoing plan for life beyond high school.
Social/Emotional Support: Counselors can help students with a wide range of issues including but not limited to decision-making skills, transitions, time management skills, and learning how to manage peer relationships.
Counselors meet with students on both an individual basis and in a group settings throughout the student’s high school career. Students may make an appointment with their counselor by directly emailing them. Their counselor will schedule them for an appointment. Counselors are available to students throughout the day and practice an “open door” policy whenever possible. Emergency situations will be handled on an individual basis.
