 Welcome to Brennan Counseling Dept. 

The Brennan HS Guidance & Counseling Department is working hard to ensure a smooth transition for all our students and we will provide many opportunities for individual growth and development. We are dedicated to providing a comprehensive guidance and counseling program that consists of the following four components:

  • Guidance Curriculum (goal-setting, cyber bullying, healthy relationships, etc.)
  • Responsive Services (individualized attention/small groups)
  • Individualized Student Planning (graduation requirements, career/college exploration) 
  • System Support (school/community resources). 

Brennan Counselors make a difference!

The Brennan Counselors can provide the “BEAR” necessities for the transition to high school.  The Guidance & Counseling Department is here to serve our students by providing a comprehensive program that will focus on the needs of the Brennan community.
