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. 
Some of the academic supports and programs available to BHS students are provided on the How We Support Students page.

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.

Students interested in pursuing an Educational Options program should meet with his/her assigned school counselor to discuss the option and next steps if they decide to move forward and submit a proposal and request. The school counselor can provide information on how to formally submit a request using the online Educational Options Form.  To learn more, visit the Ohio Department of Education Credit Flexibility page.
