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

Timetable Changes:

For semester 2 timetable concerns, we ask that you complete the course change request form below. Timetable changes will only be considered if they are for a valid reason (ie. missing a course, level change, etc). It is important that you use the Google Form to communicate with us, as this is a central place that will enable us to work through your timetable issues in a prompt manner. While making your timetable changes, we will contact you directly should we have any questions. Otherwise, please continue to monitor your PowerSchool app for your updated schedule. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
