Guidance Counselling

Considering Post-Secondary Studies?

Navigating the world of education beyond secondary school can be confusing. What type of education do I need? What schools should I consider? What prerequisites do I need? How will I afford university? Where will I live? The questions can be overwhelming. 

Our PSSS Team is ready to help!

  • Guide you in making informed decisions about courses, programs, and career options
  • Counsel you confidentially either individually or in groups
  • Help you navigate the many educational institutions and available services 
  • Assist you to learn about your new school 
  • Offer professionally accredited workshops and give ability, achievement and interest tests to help you determine a course of study or career
