We're here for our students.

Burr and Burton’s School Counseling program cultivates students’ academic and personal development throughout their high school years. School and College Counselors help students every step of the way, from their initial high school course selection to their transition to college or other post-graduate plans.

BBA Counselors are student advocates.They utilize an approach that recognizes the whole student, understanding that academic, personal and social development are intertwined. They collaborate with parents, advisors, teachers, special educators, mental health counselors, and others to support students and help them optimize their potential.

School and College Counselors work with students individually and in small groups, and also make periodic class presentations. Departmental programming covers many topics: how to balance classes and activities, career and college exploration, resume building, test-taking strategies, leadership development, decision-making, academic planning and more. Individual student conferences and family meetings yield personalized college lists that reflect a student’s interests, strengths, achievements and goals. Annual programs that address the needs of students and parents include: Junior Jumpstart, Senior College Seminar and Workshops, Fall College Fair/College Tour Field Trip, Senior Essay and Application Workshops, Fall College Night, Financial Aid Information Night, Flex Block Topical Presentations, Financial Aid Forms Night, Standardized Test Prep Courses, Mock Interviews and Spring College Panel and Workshops. Counselors also connect students with the more than 120 college representatives who visit Burr and Burton each year. Students receive hands-on support from counselors throughout the college application process.
Upon request, Burr and Burton will forward official transcripts to colleges or future employers.
Anyone who attended Burr and Burton Academy or Burr and Burton Seminary may release his or her official transcript by communicating with the school registrar, Mary Grabarz  (mgrabarz@burrburton.org).
Requests must include your full name while enrolled, year or years of attendance, date of birth, a current phone number as well as the name and address where the transcript is to be sent.


BBA School Counselors respect individual values while encouraging students to challenge themselves through rich academic and extracurricular experiences. They focus on helping students chart an intentional path through high school that prepares them for a variety of opportunities in their post Burr and Burton lives.

My counselor has been so helpful throughout the college process. She helped me find schools that would be the best fit, in addition to helping me with all application materials.
