Academic Counselling

Academic Counselling

The Academic Counselling Department provides advice for all grades on courses necessary for high school graduation. We also help students in grades 10, 11 and 12 prepare for the transition to post-secondary life. We give information on college and university entrance requirements, help students with the application process and provide information concerning post-secondary scholarship applications.

Starting in grade 8, students are exposed to career guidance which gives them direction in selecting an educational path. By grade 12, the students have a much clearer sense of direction and feel comfortable with their choices.

Students and parents are also encouraged to visit the Ministry of Education’s Education Planner Website.  It has online aids that allow students to do research into possible Careers and Post-Secondary Options.  Once registered on this site, students can re-visit it throughout their secondary school years.

Utilizing the school website, information evenings, class visits and office visits, the Academic Counsellors assist students in maximizing their STMC experience from an academic perspective.

The Academic Counselling office is located on the 2nd floor beside the Library.
