Student Services

The Office of Student Services offers a broad array of services to a broad array of people. Even the though the office is only staffed by one person, that one person draws from the support of all the personnel of the school and the resources of the communities that surround Briarwood Academy. The Office of Student Services assists students in making informed career and educational decisions. The Office also coordinates testing, high school graduation, college/university application process, admissions to Briarwood, and many counseling services. The door is always open to students, parents, teachers, and friends.
