Machebeuf-U at BMHS

 

Bishop Machebeuf High School has always prided itself on the ability to provide college preparatory curriculum and placement of students in universities and colleges across the nation. Machebeuf-U is an expanded guidance program designed to introduce the college experience to each student at his/her current grade level. We understand there are different levels of knowledge needed from the freshman year to the senior year, and Machebeuf-U will tailor information to the appropriate needs of the student.

Machebeuf-U provides students with the academic, administrative, and emotional support that they need to succeed in high school and college. Academic support includes arranging tutoring, developing study skills, and supporting goal setting. Administrative support includes scheduling, academic advising, and assistance with college applications and financial aid for college. Because our advisers are not therapists, we only offer students general emotional support. Students with serious emotional needs are referred to private therapists.
