Bluffton High School Counseling Department

About Us
The Counseling Department here at Bluffton High School assists students in dealing with academic decisions, career plans, social and emotional issues, social skills, and other areas that prepare students to take their own place in our society. The Counseling Department is located in the main office and along the right wall.

During the school year, the counselors have group meetings and individual conferences to address the issues for students in the high school as they prepare for graduation. Support is provided throughout the year to all students and assist in giving them information that helps students plan their future. Students should feel free to make appointments with their counselor when they need advice on any problem. 

BHS has a history of tradition and excellence. By using the Triple E model, BHS prepares students to Enroll in post-secondary education, get Employed in a career, or Enlist in the armed services. Every student develops a path to graduation to support one of these outcomes.

BHS uses a three-prong approach for student success: Parents — School — Students. Visit the FAQ page to learn how you can help support your students on their path to graduation and beyond.
