Welcome to the BCHS Counseling Department

Boulder City High School’s counselors are here to help students navigate the complexities of high school: first day freshman jitters, difficult emotional events, academic and career plans, personal dilemmas, college admissions, etc. If you deal with it in high school, we are here to lend a hand.

Today’s school counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement, career and social/emotional development, ensuring today’s students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. Please feel free to reach out to one of our counselors if you have questions or concerns about your student.

Mrs. Cattoir (Classes of 2022 & 2024) and Mrs. Flores (Classes of 2023 & 2025), our school counselors, are available to talk with your child and/or provide support to parents during this time. The best way to contact your child’s counselor is by sending a message through their respective Google Forms (listed below). All meetings at this time are held through Google Meet. The forms are monitored M-F from 7:30am to 2:30pm. If it is after hours or an emergency, please contact emergency personnel or use SAFEVOICE.

ACT INFORMATION

The ACT (“American College Test”) is now the more popular college admissions standardized test in the US, with the number of test-takers exceeding that of the SAT. The ACT covers skills that you’ve learned in school. The test has four sections: English, Math, Social Studies, and Natural Sciences. You can find out more information by visiting www.actstudent.org. In college admissions, the ACT Composite Score is by far the most important score. It is calculated by taking an average of your four core section scores, with these important points: The Composite is rounded to the nearest whole number; and 0.5 is rounded UP to the nearest whole number.
