From time to time, students may want additional professional advice and counseling. The personal counseling department provides counseling and educational support to students and parents, within a confidential relationship. In coordination with the principals, personal counseling oversees the general advising program as well.
Two full-time counselors follow the students throughout their time at Burroughs. Their work is complemented by a part-time health educator. Services include oversight of the health curriculum; screening for learning difficulties and emotional concerns; short-term personal counseling following any type of loss, crisis or difficulty; counseling for a wide variety of adjustment concerns; and parent support services.
