School Counseling

In support of the Bexley City Schools' mission, the School Counselors provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling program to all students. Our programs are designed to help each student develop and enhance their academic, social/emotional, and college/career strengths in order to become responsible and productive citizens. 
As part of the school counseling role, we believe it is important to connect students with the incredible resources available to each BHS student. Students are encouraged to regularly visit with their school counselor regarding any academic and non-academic needs and opportunities available in the school, community and beyond. Students and families may also visit our BHS How We Support Students page for more information.

Mental Health Professionals

A team of Nationwide Children’s Hospital mental health professionals is available to help Bexley students K - 12, as supported by a grant from ADAMH (Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County). Two clinicians are based at the Cassingham Complex during regular school hours, handling workshops, drug and alcohol prevention education and other counseling duties. 

For more information about this support or to seek a referral, please meet with your assigned school counselor or someone in the Health Clinic or High School Office.

Educational Options

The Educational Options program brings educators, students, parents and others together to provide opportunities for students to learn in an independent or individual setting based on the student's academic goals and/or need for flexibility with their schedule. Educational Options programs can include distance learning, educational travel, independent study, internship, mentorship, project portfolio, study abroad program or a tutoring program. All Educational Options programs are graded pass/fail and count towards graduation requirements.

Students interested in pursuing an Educational Options program must meet with their assigned school counselor to discuss the option and next steps if they decide to move forward and submit a proposal. The school counselor can provide information on how to submit a proposal using the online Application and Action Plan for Educational Options Coursework Form.
