MISSION

The counseling center will be more intentional and proactive in our approach to working with students, families, and staff.  To do that beginning the 2014-2015 school year the counseling team will be working with 9th-12th grade students based on their last name.  One major benefit of the change is that families with multiple children attending Bay will be able to work with one counselor.

Specific services include: classroom guidance activities, group/individual counseling,  career counseling, crisis intervention,  assistance and consultation for parent, and liaison between teachers, students, parents and community services.
