The Guidance and Career Education Program

guidan icon 3

The Guidance and Career Education program is a vital and integral part of the secondary school program. Through the program, students will acquire the knowledge and skills that they need in order to learn effectively, to live and to work co-operatively and productively with a wide range of people, to set and pursue education and career goals, and to carry out their social responsibilities. The program will be delivered through various means, including classroom instruction, orientation and exit programs, completion of the annual education plan, career exploration activities, and individual assistance and short-term counseling.

It is important for you to become familiar with the role of your guidance counselor. Guidance Counselors provide:

  • Academic Counselling - course selection and planning, post-secondary program planning and requirements
  • Career Counselling - information on the career development process, career search and course planning
  • Personal Counselling - personal counselling referrals are made to Student Services Staff or outside agencies when appropriate
  • Attendance Counselling - referrals from teachers, parents and school administration
