The Branson High School Counseling Department has designed a comprehensive program addressing the academic, career and personal/social development of all students. The School Counselors are advocates who help students recognize their strengths and then assist them in designing specific plans of action to realize their full potential. In addition, the program monitors the school environment so that all students are respected and supported.We provide information pertaining to college, university or training school and other advanced educational opportunities. The program is designed to help students understand what high school courses they need to complete to best prepare them for further work. The counselor can also provide information about the entrance requirements of many colleges and universities, as well as information about financial aid.
