The mission of Blue Mountain School District’s counseling program is to provide a comprehensive developmental counseling program addressing the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. Blue Mountain counselors are professional school advocates who provide support to maximize student potential and academic achievement. In partnership with parents, faculty, administration, and the community, Blue Mountain counselors facilitate the support systems to ensure all students have access to and are prepared with the knowledge, skills, and technology to achieve personal goals and contribute at the highest level as productive members of society.
The Program provides high school students with the opportunity to pursue college-level studies and to receive credit and/or advanced placement in college on the basis of their performance on rigorous AP examinations. Policy on the acceptance of advanced placement exam scores varies among post-secondary institutions. This program is offered through the College Board; college AP score policies can be found at www.collegeboard.org. AP examinations are administered at Blue Mountain High School during designated dates and times in the month of May. The guidance department coordinates and administers the AP exams. Students enrolled in AP courses are required to take the exam in May, and pay for one-half of the exam fee. Exam fees will be collected the first week of each school year.
