The mission of the Burlington High School Guidance Department is to support the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. Through individual and group counseling, collaboration with school, home, and community, and assessment of student needs, we foster responsible decision-making.

Free Practice Test
Burlington High School students can take either a free practice SAT or PSAT test at BHS on Saturday 9/17 beginning at 9AM. In order to take either of these free tests students MUST register (registration information below).
We would recommend that seniors that missed the SAT last spring, or seniors that want to brush up on skills, take the free practice SAT test.
Juniors and sophomores will take the collegeboard sponsored PSAT on 10/19. The test on 10/19 is a full scale PSAT, and If students score high enough they can potentially qualify for national merit. So for students in grades 10 and 11, the practice PSAT gives them a chance to prepare for the upcoming PSAT at BHS on 10/19. The PSAT on10/19 is NOT free for juniors, but is free for sophomores.
For either practice test on 9/17 it gives students a chance to practice under test conditions which hopefully reduces test day stress
