Guidance Office

  • Welcome to the Ballston Spa High School Guidance Office.  We would like to thank you, in advance, for visiting our website. We hope you find it a helpful resource.

    The staff of the Ballston Spa High School Guidance Office is available to assist every student with their concerns about career planning, college placement, educational planning, testing, social, and academic needs. Students may stop by the guidance office before school, between classes, during non instructional time, or after school to see their counselor.  If a counselor is unavailable, students can sign-in to have a counselor send for them.

    We believe that learning is easier, more effective and less stressful when there is an environment that emphasizes:  feeling safe, caring, respect, fairness, empathy and integrity.  It is our goal that every student feels good about coming to school every day.
