The Guidance office is a welcoming and comfortable environment for students, staff, and families. We provide academic support to students on their high school and post-secondary journey.
This comes in the form of academic, educational, career, and socio-emotional counseling. Guidance-CUPO helps deliver Ontario’s career development policy, Creating Pathways to Success. Moreover, we support the student’s approach to education and career/life planning. We work closely with students, families, and staff to help students achieve their personal and academic goals.
Guidance-CUPO works with students in a variety of ways:
The principal and guidance counsellor/teacher will provide options and suggestions to support students who require extra academic assistance. Through consultation with the classroom teacher and program support from guidance, the student’s success will be monitored and reviewed throughout the semester. Options for peer-tutoring programs, 1-1 tutoring sessions, onsite tutoring, and other services will be discussed as measures to ensure student success.
The primary responsibilities of an Educational Assistant include designing, supervising, assessing, and reporting on instructional programs. The classroom teacher may direct the daily work of the education assistant. The EA provides classroom support for the teacher. This may involve working closely with individual students who are having difficulty with the curriculum.
