Bloom Trail Counseling Department


The mission of the Bloom Trail High School Counseling Department is to provide a comprehensive counseling program to assist students in acquiring the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to become effective citizens, and lifelong learners. Our goal is to cultivate their academic, career, personal and social development to prepare them to reach their highest potential. We provide guidance services to all students and cater to their academic, career, and social/emotional needs.

As always, please feel free to reach out to your student’s alpha-slice counselor or myself with any questions or concerns you may have.   A full list of the BT Counseling Staff contact information can be found here.

On October 1, the application for the 2023-2024 FAFSA will be available online.  All students planning on attending a vocational, 2 year, or 4 year college/university is required to complete a FAFSA so they can be considered for grants, scholarships and loans to help aid in paying for their college education.
