Booking an Appointment & Hours

Students can book appointments with a guidance counselor. 

School Counsellors

School counsellors support student learning by offering personal, educational and career counselling, and connecting with parents and teachers to promote student success. They also provide information on financial assistance, awards, loans, scholarships and bursaries. Referrals or liaisons with social agencies, educational institutions and government agencies are made when required. They will meet with students and parents to discuss programming needs, scholarship opportunities, learning concerns, post-secondary entrance requirements, etc. Appointments with a counsellor may be booked throughout the year in the Student Services office or by calling 403-286-5092, local 2112..

Changing Courses

Should students require a change in classes, they must make an appointment to see a school counsellor at the identified time before the semester begins. Teachers or administrators may recommend that students move to an alternate course.

Dropping Courses

Dropping courses is strongly discouraged and may occur only under exceptional circumstances. Students who drop courses must do this prior to the end of Term 1 or Term 3, in consultation with their school counsellor. After this date, Grade 11 or 12 students requesting a class drop must complete a Course Withdrawal Form, which they obtain from their school counsellor and submit to the main office.
