Education and Career Pathway Planning

Talking to a Guidance Counsellor at St. Louis is not entirely like when you were in high school last. St. Louis Guidance Counsellors are certified teachers with Guidance qualifications and experience, however they also understand your adult responsibilities, perspectives and sense of urgency to get where you want to go.

You do not need to make an appointment, however students are seen in queue during Guidance Office Hours

Please plan to arrive no later than 30 minutes before Guidance hours are finished. Depending on the time of day and time of year, line-ups to see Guidance staff may occur.  And despite the wait, Guidance will spend the time needed with you, which averages 15-20 minutes.

To maximize your time with a St. Louis Guidance Counsellor, the following items will be helpful to review your academic progress and develop a plan together.  If you plan to register for a credit course, these items are required:

  • Letter to verify completion of CLB 6 (if you are a LINC or ESL student)
  • and a Secondary School Credit Pre-Registration Form if you chose to download and complete it in advance of your meeting with Guidance
