Welcome to BFA Guidance


The Guidance Department serves all students at BFA We strive to maintain a comprehensive guidance curriculum that continues to meet Vermont education standards. Our curriculum includes:


Academic Development


Career Development


Personal / Social Development


To ensure that each student has sufficient support, students are divided alphabetically and are assigned to one of our five counselors. 


The Guidance Department currently offers individual and group counseling. In addition to these available services, we consider it our job to advocate for all students, including identifying and supporting students struggling academically or personally. Individual counseling includes personal and social support, course selection, career guidance, and peer mediation. The student population is assessed yearly to determine what type of groups are needed.


The involvement of parents in their child’s education is highly significant for that child’s success in education. Often this becomes more difficult when children graduate from elementary school into the high school. Our department holds programs that are geared toward helping parents remain involved. Some of these programs include parent conference nights and programs regarding post-secondary education.
