Counseling

Upon enrollment at CBHS, students are assigned a primary counselor who is available for academic, personal, and career counseling.

CBHS 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 at times professionals in the community, to promote 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.

The CBHS Counseling Department offers a variety of services to students and their parents through their School Counseling and College Counseling programs (see below for resources). Upon enrollment at CBHS, students are assigned a primary counselor who is available for academic, personal, and career counseling. As a junior each student is also assigned a college counselor to facilitate the college admissions process. Generally during a student’s senior year, he will meet mainly with his college counselor, however, his primary counselor remains available to him for any personal/academic issues that might arise. Counselor assignments may be found on a student’s personal profile after logging into the CBHS website. Parents are encouraged to contact their son’s counselor to discuss matters of concern or to schedule individual appointments. Students may schedule appointments with their counselors by completing a “request for interview” form in the Counseling Center or by requesting an appointment via email.
