As your student journeys through high school, Guidance counsellors help them navigate their pathway based on their skill set, academic achievements, and future goals. The transition from elementary school to high school begins in Grades 7 and 8, and continues through grade 12 when we prepare students for their post-secondary destinations. Every year, our Guidance team helps our students select the appropriate classes for their post-secondary pathway destination.
Another significant role of the Villanova Guidance team is to support the social and emotional needs of our students. High school can be challenging. The Guidance office is a safe space where students can access support of any kind. Our Guidance team is very well connected with community services and in-school supports (Child and Youth Worker, Mental Health and Addictions Nurse, and Psychological supports) and we help students establish connections with the appropriate support systems.
