Guidance Counselors

Welcome Counselors

We rely on your partnership to educate our young people about the benefits of a technical degree. According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics from March 2013, 3.8 million jobs in our country go unfilled because we lack the workforce with the skills and education to fill them. At Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology, we are strategic about our curriculum, aligning what students learn with workforce needs. Furthermore, we teach strong writing and communication skills so that our students will be successful members of teams once they graduate. Please e-mail, call, or visit us with any questions or to discuss collaboration. We are eager to work with you to help place every student on the path to success.

We Can Help You Help Your Students:

  • Field Trips – We can help you organize a field trip to Benjamin Franklin, allowing your students to see first-hand what goes on in our classrooms. We can accommodate groups of any size and will tailor the trip to your specifications.

  • Student for a Day – We welcome your students to our campus for a visit anytime if they are interested in sitting in on some of our classes. We can schedule them to stay with us for an entire day and get the real Benjamin Franklin experience. This is a great option for students who are trying to decide between one or more majors too.

  • Classroom Presentations – Our Admissions staff will visit your school and present directly to your students on the value of a Benjamin Franklin education. Presentations are designed to answer any and all questions pertaining to particular majors, career prospects, financing options and life at Benjamin Franklin.

  • Luncheon tours for teachers and counselors/guidance association dinners – We are happy to have you visit our campus for a luncheon tour. We are also able to sponsor regional guidance association dinner meetings. In previous years, we've hosted the Western Massachusetts Guidance Association, the Cape and Islands Guidance Association and the South Shore Guidance Association.

If your group is interested in having us host one of these events, please contact the Admissions Office at 617-588-1368.
