A Message from the Counseling Team

Dear Bloomfield Hills High School Class of 2024 Incoming Students and Families,

As a counseling department, we would like to take the opportunity to welcome you to Bloomfield Hills High School for the 2020-2021 school year.  We know this will be a new experience for everyone returning to school following the recent school closures. Rest assured, the administrative team will have information forthcoming that will answer all your questions in this regard.  

The counseling department is here to help you have a productive and fulfilling high school experience.  Our role as counselors is one that is not only comprehensive but specific to the needs and expectations of our students and families.  Hopefully, you will find new friendships, activities, and relationships over the next four years that make you proud to be a Black Hawk!

It is our hope that you will take the opportunity to become fully acquainted with and involved in all that BHHS has to offer.  Spend some time on the high school website to explore and become familiar with the activities available to you.  Upon exploration, we believe you will find BHHS a very special and unique place that involves students and families in ways that help foster independence, self-esteem, and personal discovery not only through academics but clubs and co-curricular activities.

As always we wish you a safe and restful summer.  We will be ready to greet you in the fall and ensure you the smoothest transition from middle school to high school. 

Sincerely,

Brian Fitzgerald (A-C)
Jim Fogle (D-G)
Laura Hollyer-Madis (H-K)
