From time to time, students may want additional professional advice and counseling. The Counseling & Wellness Department provides counseling and educational support to students and parents, within a confidential relationship.
Two full-time counselors follow the students throughout their time at Burroughs. Their work is complemented by a health educator and part-time counselor. Services include oversight of the health curriculum; screening for learning difficulties and emotional concerns; personal counseling following any type of loss, crisis or difficulty; counseling for a wide variety of adjustment concerns; and parent support services. The department also supports Family Network programming.
