The BFIS Counseling Department believes:

  • all students contribute to the community.
  • students often possess the solutions to their own problems and that when they are given guidance and a chance to reflect and talk in a safe environment, they will be able to articulate their feelings and develop strategies for success.
  • challenges and failure should not be feared, but embraced and used as tools for further learning.
  • self-esteem and academic performance are intricately linked
  • good schools educate not only the mind, but the character of each student.
  • counselors play a key role in helping students reflect upon and develop compassion, courtesy, curiosity, and openness to diversity en route to becoming responsible global citizens.
