• Summer Opportunities
     
    Over the course of the school year the BHSS counseling office receives many summer opportunities.  These are typically programs offered by colleges or employers for students who are interested in a particular field of study (e.g. biology, engineering, history, etc.).  Although most of the programs we receive are local or in-state in nature, we do receive information about many out-of-state programs as well.  Below you will find brief summaries of the programs our counseling office has received information about.  They are split into three categories: local, in-state, and out-of-state; they are then sorted by deadline.
     
    This is not a comprehensive list.  There are many summer programs colleges are offering that our office has not been made aware of.  If you have any questions or concerns you may contact the counseling office or make an appointment with your counselor.  You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.
