Services for Students
Career and Personal Counseling
Career, academic and personal counseling are available from a guidance counselor. Students may make appointments for one-on-one career and personal counseling at any time. Counselors can assist with a variety of problems and make referrals to community resources. Student Services will make an effort to connect the student with outside resources, which will meet their personal needs.
Make an appointment in the counseling services office to see a counselor if you have any concerns.
There are many community agencies in the Weston-Finch area which can help with resume writing, job search, goal-setting, etc. Several web sites are helpful for self-assessment.
There are also excellent resources to assist with the challenges facing new immigrants, the unemployed or the single parent. We will assist students with immediate needs and then often refer to an agency. See list of agencies.
