Counseling & Student Support

The Counseling Department at Christian Brothers High School offers a variety of services to students and parents alike. Upon enrollment, incoming students are assigned a primary counselor who provides academic, personal, and career counseling. Additionally, in their junior year, students are assigned a college counselor to facilitate the college admissions process. During a student’s senior year, he primarily meets with his college counselor, but his primary counselor remains available for any personal or academic concerns that may arise.

Upcoming Counseling Events

Our counselors are partners in student achievement and meet regularly with students to assess and monitor academic progress. Counselors are also available to support students in addressing personal, social-emotional issues, or anything that affects the student and his ability to achieve to his fullest potential. Counselors often use a collaborative approach involving the student, his parents, faculty, and professionals in the community as needed to support his learning and development. Students may be referred by teachers and parents, or a student may self-refer by requesting an appointment via email or by filing out a request for appointment in the CBHS Counseling Center at McCourtney Hall.

A student's counselor may be found on his profile using the myCBHS portal. Parents are encouraged to contact their son’s counselor to discuss matters of concern or to schedule appointments. The Counseling Center also welcomes walk-ins!

"Our Counseling Department goes above and beyond to support the whole student. We establish a relationship with each of them to guide them through every aspect of a Brothers' Boy's life."

Erin Brick, CBHS Learning Specialist

During junior year, students are assigned a college counselor to facilitate the college admissions process; however, students are encouraged to begin thinking about their college plan beginning their Freshman year.

The Counseling Department at CBHS has created a College Planning Curriculum which begins in the 9th grade with academic advising and standardized testing that continues with both individual and group college counseling through their senior year. Our College Counselors are committed to helping students navigate the college search process to find a higher education institution that best meets their needs and abilities: academically, socially, philosophically, and economically.

Take advantage of these opportunities for year-round academic support!
