Guidance offices are comfortable and welcoming environments for all students and families; a place where you can obtain both 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 to 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 around all post-secondary pathways (workplace, college, apprenticeship, university) and career pathways
  • Supports students in establishing effective study habits and exam preparation
  • Coaches in the scholarship application process
  • Supports students with such life skills as decision-making, problem-solving, conflict-resolution,/stress & time management and relationship awareness
  • Provides personal support and referrals to community resources
  • Provides crisis support and referrals to community resources
