Welcome to the Branham High School's Counseling Department!

Branham's School Counselors offer students support in the achievement of high school goals and preparation for life beyond high school.  School Counselors regularly work with students, parents/guardians, staff and teachers to help ensure student success. We meet with students individually, in groups, and during class visits throughout the school year.  

Students can drop in before school, at lunch, and after school or make appointments to meet with their counselor one-on-one through email at any time throughout the year. Parents and guardians are welcome to schedule a meeting or contact their student’s school counselor via email or phone.


Our Counselors are happy to speak with you. Please contact your Counselor at her/his email address or make an appointment through his/her Office Hours Link (see below). Please make sure to complete the description area when making an appointment so they can better prepare for your meeting.
