A student’s academic performance can be influenced by many factors in and out of school. Brighton’s counseling program is designed to support the academic, social, emotional and executive functioning growth of all its students.

The program’s goal is to help our students develop a strong sense of self, learn self-advocacy skills, and a clear understanding of their strengths in and out of the classroom. Brighton has one school counselor on staff. In addition to working with the student population, the counselor is available to provide support to parents and teachers.
