Bulldog Time

Bulldog Time (BDT) is an important block of time that every student can participate in and is an essential part of the Arvada High School curriculum. Students are assigned to the same Bulldog Time advisor (teacher) and are with the same cohort of peers throughout their four years.

The primary purpose of BDT is to provide the time and space for students to develop and nurture positive relationships with a smaller group of peers and a trusted adult advisor while honing essential skills necessary for life after high school. Throughout this journey, students will engage in social and emotional learning (SEL) and team-building activities to accomplish this goal.

BDT also provides students the opportunity to participate in work-based learning (WBL) and college prep activities. These opportunities encompass but are not limited to ​​career exploration, professional guest speakers and panel sessions, and completing Individual Career and Academic Planning (ICAP) in conjunction with the school’s counseling department.

Some grade levels will use some of their BDT to complete their capstone and other graduation requirement work. To help facilitate this time, advisors and students are provided a menu of weekly activities that include links to slides, videos, documents and other required materials.
