This year, please be advised that all available local scholarship paper copy applications can be downloaded directly from Naviance.  The scholarship listing will be updated throughout the month of March as the scholarships are renewed by the local donors. A limited number of paper applications will also be available at the Guidance Office. Most applications have been posted.

Each senior should check the scholarship link on Naviance AND Scholarship America on a weekly basis to ascertain if there are any new scholarships available. For each scholarship listed on Naviance, be sure to click on the link and read the details for more information on requirements, transcript requests, and directions on how to submit the scholarship application. You will note that some scholarship applications are turned in to the Guidance Office whereas others are mailed or submitted directly by the student. It is the responsibility of each senior to meet all specific scholarship deadlines. If you are having problems logging in please feel free to contact the Guidance office.

Please listen to the morning announcements as Ms. Minty will hold several after school scholarship help sessions. As always feel free to schedule an appointment with your respective Guidance Counselor.

2019 Course Selection Assemblies Recap

The Burlington High School Guidance Department met with grades 9, 10 and 11 to discuss the course selection process and the 2019/2020 Program of Studies. Please click here to view the information  presented to students. Also, on the right hand side of this blog, please find the box titled " Program of Studies" for information in regard to the program of studies and course planning. Most notably the Guidance Department has adopted a 4 year planner, which we recommend students consider completing as part of the course selection process. 

This year the Guidance Department added a new feature to our junior course selection meetings. A group of seniors that just completed the college application process presented some key information to juniors in regard to the college application process. The seniors did a great job offering advice, tips and things to avoid. Our hope is this presentation serves as a great segue as the BHS Guidance  Department dives into the colleges process with juniors.
