Specialists in learning support, counselors, and nurses work together on both campus specific and cross-campus teams, in collaboration with faculty, staff and administrators, to offer a range of support to meet our students’ diverse needs. Through collaborative partnerships, we empower students to overcome challenges, embrace their unique abilities, and become resilient, lifelong learners.
BB&N’s counseling program prioritizes the social-emotional and mental well-being of all students. We offer confidential sessions, collaborate with external providers, and integrate with internal health programming to promote wellness and resilience. Our goal is to create a supportive environment where students can thrive and develop lifelong skills for navigating challenges. Counselors welcome visits and are available to speak with students about personal, family, social, or school concerns. Students may drop in or schedule an appointment with a Counselor. While conversations are kept confidential, disclosures may be warranted if the health or well-being of a student is in question. The Counselors consult with administrators, teachers, advisors, and parents around individual student concerns and general adolescent topics.
Our BB&N school nurses, located on all three campuses, are compassionate, competent and caring professionals. The goal of the nursing program is to facilitate healthy lifestyles so that each student has the opportunity for success. This is accomplished by providing episodic care of acute illness and injury; safe administration of prescription and over-the-counter medications; collaboration with parents and health care providers to assist in the management of chronic or long-term health conditions; ensuring all students are in compliance with state mandated school health regulations; providing referrals to internal and external health resources; and by offering health education opportunities. The school nurses also work with the campus specific and cross-campus teams to support the holistic needs of all students.
If you or someone you know are in need of emergency care, please call 9/11 or go to your local emergency room. You can also contact the 24/7 hotline: 1-800-273-8255 or visit the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline.
For non-emergency situations, you can reach out to any of our campus counselors found on our Meet The Team page.
A student’s homeroom teacher and/or advisor is always the best first contact when you are concerned about your child. The campus learning specialists and counselors are also available. All of these faculty/staff work in teams, so it is most important to reach out and let us know your concerns – we will connect you with the right person for next steps.
