Barron Collier Cougar Community,
Welcome to Barron Collier High School. BCH is entering its 42nd year in serving Naples and the greater Collier County. I am a 21-year employee of Collier County Public Schools and a member of the Naples community for over 27 years. It is my honor to serve as principal of Barron Collier and continue the traditions of excellence. My goals are simple: I pledge to help students find their success and forge a path towards goals and aspirations while building a school support network for each student. The faculty and staff are dedicated to supporting and stretching each student to reach his or her potential and build life-long character traits. I look forward to working with all the stakeholders: parents, students, alumni and the community in building on the excellence that is BC. Students, staff, parents, alumni, and community members understand it is "All about the Blue." My accessibility to you is important. Please feel free to contact me at any time as we build a working relationship for our students and our community. I invite you to visit Barron Collier High School and experience the traditions of excellence that make us "BC Nation."
Jon M. Bremseth, Principal
I am entering my 34th year in the education field. I spent most of my career in the Cleveland, Ohio area as a coach, teacher, assistant principal, and principal. During the course of my career, I have spent time at both the middle and high school levels. Based on my experience students who are involved and feel a part of their school do much better in the classroom. I view my role as an APC to assist both teachers and students as they pursue academic excellence. I want to help facilitate your child’s greatness whether it be in or out of the classroom. I enjoy watching teachers teach and students learn! I also enjoy interacting with students outside of the classroom at all of the extra-curricular activities that our students are able to participate in at BCH. I look forward to working with all members of “BC Nation” and building positive relationships as we face this challenging school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any academic concerns you may have.
Sean McAndrews, Assistant Principal Curriculum & Instruction
This is my 19th year as a proud member of the Cougar Family, and I am honored to be a part of this amazing community dedicated to supporting academic achievement that is balanced with and encourages participation in a variety of extracurricular activities. My goal is to assist the members of our school community as they work toward meeting their potential by providing opportunities to achieve their goals, whether those goals are academic, athletic or personal, and to celebrate our students’ achievements and successes in a positive, student-focused learning environment. Please feel to contact me with any questions, concerns or to share the achievements and successes of our students.
Theresa Gersbach, Assistant Principal of Attendance & Discipline
This is my 7th year as an administrator at BC. My first administrative position was at BC before working at other Collier County middle and high schools and then coming back home to BC. My goal is to ensure students, staff and parents all feel safe, secure and supported during their time at BC. We call our office “Student Services” instead of Attendance and Discipline because our role is to serve students. We are the customer service center of Barron Collier. The positive climate that we foster through this philosophy helps students to focus on their personal goals and academic achievements. If your student is not feeling this way, then they should reach out to me either in person or through our Student Services course in Canvas.
Robert Dawes, Assistant Principal of Attendance & Discipline
I have served as Barron Collier High School’s Activities Coordinator since 2014. After spending 14 years in the business world, I settled into teaching and coaching, which brought great joy and satisfaction to me. I’ve spent my entire educational career right here at BCH starting in 1994, and I call Barron Collier my second home. I began as the In-School Suspension aide for 3 years and then moved into the classroom as a social studies teacher and club advisor for 17. I’ve always been involved in sports in some manner and feel my experiences there have shaped who I’ve come to be. I work to help our Cougar student athletes develop strong work ethics, experience risks and rewards, commit to something bigger than each individual, and celebrate the successes of their efforts. Please come support our teams by attending a game or watch on Live Stream, as available. For the Blue and Grey…Gooo Cougars!!!

Visiting Barron Collier High School
If you visit Barron Collier during regular school hours, it is suggested that you use the Cougar Drive entrance off of Airport Road. Campus gates to other entrances are closed during the school day. All visitors must check in through the Reception Office before being admitted. Students will have to show their student ID, and other visitors will be required to show a valid driver’s license.
Delivery of non-school related items, e.g. balloons, flowers, birthday cakes, etc., will not be accepted by the Reception Office. We will, however, attempt to get assignments and school books, delivered by parents, to their students.
