Meet Our Counselors

The Boulder High School Counseling Department provides academic and personal/social support, as well as post-secondary planning guidance for all students. We assist with planning a meaningful course of study and navigating the school environment to encourage individual growth and development as lifelong learners.


 

Appointments

Students and parents may schedule an appointment with their counselor either through the counseling office administrative assistant or by emailing their counselor. View the Counseling Website for contact information.

Counselor On Call

At times, a student or parent may need information or a quick response. For those needs, students are encouraged to speak with the counselor on call. The counselor on call is available to help students and parents every day.

Counselor Change 

With more than 2,100 students, and a focus on maintaining balanced counselor caseloads, we do not allow counselor changes or requests for a specific counselor.


High School Counselor Role

High school counselors spend a lot of their time helping students make sure their course selections are aligned with their goals for after they graduate. In particular, counselors assist students in researching post-graduation opportunities such as college or professional training. When students apply to colleges, they often seek guidance from their counselors on how to complete the application, what to write about for their admission essay, and who to get letters of recommendation from. Counselors also continue the work with students on their social and emotional development, study skills, decision making, problem solving, and resiliency.
