Guidance

​The guidance office is a comfortable and welcoming environment for students and families—a place where you can obtain information and support. The secondary school guidance department serves the school community in a variety of ways:

  • Supports students in academic planning and course selection
  • Helps students seek out special pathways programs in secondary school that support their learning styles, interests and needs
  • Helps individual students to envision a plan for post-secondary and target some short- and long-term goals
  • Provides information about all post-secondary and career pathways
  • Supports students in establishing effective study habits and exam preparation
  • Coaches in career/life planning, including college and university scholarship application process
  • Supports students with life skills like decision-making, problem-solving, conflict resolution, stress and time management and relationship awareness
  • Provides personal support and referrals to community resources
