BDHS School Mission Statement

At Brentsville District we believe that all students can learn to their fullest potential. Student's learning will be enhanced by national, global, and multicultural perspectives. Graduates will possess the basic knowledge and skills that will assure their proficiency in problem solving and technology. They will be responsible citizens, life-long learners, and will be prepared for a variety of post-graduation options.

BDHS is a Cambridge School

Many Prince William County Schools have specialty programs. View information on the specialties. View information about the Parent Information Night at all the high schools.

BDHS School Vision Statement

The mission of BDHS is to provide high quality and comprehensive education which will allow each student to reach his/her fullest potential within the bounds of his/her abilities and chosen educational goals and to become a life-long learner and a productive member of society.

Here at Brentsville we believe:

  • Higher expectations yield higher results.
  • Community involvement is essential to the successful operation of the school.
  • Extracurricular activities are a cornerstone of the educational process.
  • The family is the primary influence in the development of the student.
  • Effective communication is essential.
  • All students can learn.
  • Learning is a life-long endeavor.
  • Excellence is achievable and always worth the investment.
  • Collaboration among staff is critical to success.

Using Naviance Student™

Naviance Student is the new Naviance student experience that replaces Family Connection and enables students to engage anywhere in college and career planning. You can access Naviance Student on your mobile device or computer. Naviance Student is provided free of charge to all high school students courtesy of the Office of Student Services.

Naviance Student allows your student to:

Get involved in the planning and advising process – Build a resume, complete online surveys, and manage timelines and deadlines for making decisions about colleges and careers
Research colleges – Compare his/her GPA, standardized test scores, and other statistics to actual admissions decision data from your high school for students who have applied in the past
Research careers – Research hundreds of careers and career clusters, and take career assessments
Create plans for the future – Create goals and to-dos, and complete tasks assigned by the school to better prepare your student for future college and career goals.

Naviance Student also lets us share information with you and your student about upcoming meetings and events, local scholarship opportunities, and other resources for college and career information.

You will find a link to your school’s Naviance Student website on your high school’s website. You may also easily look up your school’s Naviance Student website from the Naviance home page.

Your student can obtain his/her user id and passcode from the school counseling department at your assigned high school. I hope that you and your student will find this resource helpful as he/she plans for life after high school. For more information about post-secondary planning please visit the Office of Student Services website or follow us on Twitter (@PWCSFutureReady). If you have questions about Naviance Student please contact your student’s school counselor.

Sincerely,
The BDHS Counseling Team
