Guidance

What is Guidance?

Guidance Counsellors are teachers in high schools that provide support to students with general problem-solving, planning their path to graduation, and helping to guide students to mental health supports in the community.  Guidance Counsellors are responsible for educating students about the different pathway options in the OCDSB in order to help families make informed decisions for their child's education.

Where Can I Find You?

Guidance Counsellors are located in the school's Student Services Office (room N127) on the first floor of the North Building.

We provide:

  • Support with course selection and planning your path to graduation,
  • Support with planning for post-secondary studies,
  • Help locating mental health supports in the community,
  • Support answering general questions about school and problem-solving,
  • Support transitioning students into high school, and onto post-secondary,
  • All-around support for students who are at risk.

Guidance Staff

Students are assigned to Guidance Counsellors alphabetically by their last names.  Students are welcome to come see their Guidance Counsellor in the Student Services Office by dropping in either before/after school, or during the lunch hour.   Students can also email their questions.  Parents/guardians are welcome to contact us if you have any questions.
