We Welcome You

We welcome all students and parents to seek assistance from our counseling office when they are in need of help. Our staff can offer assistance with social, emotional, behavioral, or academic issues.

"At a previous school it was always hard to get in to see a counselor or someone to even make a schedule change. At BTA I can see my counselor any time and get changes made quickly when needed."

- Sarah, Class of 2023
