College Advising Services
BSH is pleased to offer its students with a variety of resources to provide academic support and guidance during these critical years in the Upper School Program. Juniors and seniors work very closely with their college counselor, who assists with the application process, scholarship research, processing all transcripts and counselor recommendations, and serves as a liaison for the students and colleges and universities. Students meet with the college counselor on a scheduled basis to ensure that every student graduates with an offer from a four-year college or university.
