Post-Secondary Information

The process of transitioning to life after graduation can seem daunting. As the Academic Counselling Team, however, it is our pleasure to walk alongside our students as they explore their gifts, talents and callings and as they plan for possible career paths. STMC is proud of the graduates who leave our school to make their mark in our broader communities.

Grad Parent Info

This section will be used to update parents about info related to the transition to post-secondary life. All this information plus more will be made known to students via their Google Classroom site and through Academic Assemblies.

External Scholarship Opportunities For Graduating Students

Here, we will post scholarships as they come up during the year. However students should also make sure they are registered on scholarship search sites like Scholar TreeYconic and Scholarships Canada.

Other sources to research for scholarships include:

  • athletic, cultural or religious clubs that students are affiliated with
  • parents’ places of work
  • financial institutions

Below is a list of external scholarships that come up every year. Many of these have been won by STMC students in the past. Please note that some of the links have not yet been updated for the 2021-22 school year.

In addition all post-secondary schools offer their own Entrance Scholarships. Students must do their research to find application deadlines and requirements.

In the new year we will post an impressive list of scholarships awarded by STMC. The applications for those awards are due in late April or early May.

Academic Counselling Resources

Post Secondary BC  offers practical information to help narrow down your areas of study, possible institutions and information sessions

Education Planner BC helps learners make well informed decisions about their education and career options. To see all that this site has to offer: Education Planner Tutorial 

BC Colleges   Colleges are a great option as they tend to be smaller in size, offer more personal instruction, are less expensive and allow for a smoother transition from high school to post-secondary institutions. Most courses taken at a college level can be transferred directly into subsequent university programs.

Industry Training Authority manages over 100 trades programs in BC, 49 of which are Red Seal. Here, you will find information regarding  Apprenticeship programs, Careers in trades/Top in-demand trades, Youth in trades and essential skill assessments to see if a trade is a good fit for you.

Career Counselling Resources

The intent of the Career Counselling Resource is to give you a comprehensive overview of the graduation requirements, post-secondary application process and scholarship application process. It is not meant to overwhelm you! Rest assured that the information will also be provided on an ‘as-needed’ basis through reminders on the Post Secondary Google Classroom Site. Think of this resource as a full large map of the process and the Google Classroom as the step-by-step navigation guide through Google Maps. This is an exciting time for you as you consider your post-graduation plans.
