College & Career Ready Elks

There is a new face in the office this year!

My name is Kaitlin Houk and I have previously worked with BHS freshmen for the last five years. I am now the NEW College and Career Readiness Coordinator on campus! I coordinate our AP, Dual Credit, and AVID programs on campus but most importantly I'm here to assist our BHS students in gearing up for a successful life after high school.

If you need college and career counseling, you can schedule an appointment with me on the website here. I usually see students and/or parents from 8:00-9:00 am. I understand that not all schedules can accommodate that time schedule so you can schedule a phone conference if needed. I am available to help with college and career planning, college entrance exams, scholarships, and FAFSA.


Dual Credit students, please make sure you are enrolled in the appropriate courses through Hill College before school starts. Please send me an email if you have any questions!

It is going to be a fantastic year! I can’t wait to serve you guys in my new role.
