The purpose of the Middle School Guidance program is to develop a safe, supportive and caring learning environment that fosters individual growth and self-reflection in students. Students will use an inquiry approach to develop an academic plan based on individual questions that arise during each stage. The academic plan will help students take responsibility for their education, make informed decisions and plan for the future. Developing study skills, interpersonal communication skills, positive attitudes, self-awareness and self-esteem will be incorporated into the program. The students will also participate in a series of workshops that involve personal safety, goal setting, wellness and stress management.


Guidance and Career Education program goals for Senior School students include: • understanding the concepts related to lifelong learning, interpersonal relationships (including responsible citizenship) and career planning; • developing learning skills, social skills, a sense of social responsibility and the ability to formulate and pursue educational and career goals; and • applying learning to their lives and work in the school and community. The goals are organized into three areas of knowledge and skills: student development, interpersonal development and career development. The comprehensive four-year school Guidance and Career Education program reflects the interconnectedness of these three areas through an inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning. University counselling is an integral component of the Guidance program.
