Student Support


BCIS offers a whole-school, comprehensive Student Support program. A Secondary School Counselor, a whole-school Counselor, and an Elementary School Counselor complement and support the work of one ECC School Learning Support Teacher, two Elementary LS teachers, and two Secondary School LS teachers.

The Student Support program exists to ensure that the individual needs of all students are met. The program merges the expertise of Guidance Counselors and LS teachers to create a comprehensive service that is better able to support a wide range of student needs. The Counselors support students with social, emotional, or behavioral needs, as well as facilitating entrance to tertiary education. The LS teachers, in collaboration with classroom teachers, support students at both ends of the learning continuum, including students with learning needs and students who are highly capable.

Parents may contact any member of the Student Support staff to ask specific questions about the program.
