The Place of Guidance and C​areer Education in the Curriculum
The focus of the Guidance Department at Emily Carr Secondary School is to provide students with the tools they need to be successful in school, in their daily lives and in preparation for  their post-secondary pathway.  We offer a variety of services, programs and events to assist our students.  Our focus is threefold:

Academic Counselling:  Guidance counsellors support students individually with their academic course selections and they provide overall support to help students achieve academic success.

Career Counselling: The Guidance Department provides opportunities and materials for students to discover and explore a variety of career possibilities.  Counsellors help students to individually set goals, create a plan and prepare, so that they can achieve their desired pathway goal whether it is the world of work, apprenticeship, college or university.  

Personal Counselling: Guidance counsellors are always available to listen and support students with personal concerns in a safe, caring and confidential way.  We also work with our community agencies to make outside support available if required.  

 

Potential Graduate Release of Information:

There will be a one-time release of electronic student data files for all students in Grade 12 on October 3rd to the Ontario College Application Service (OCAS), on October 16th to the Ontario University Application Centre (OUAC), using secure transmission technology.  This will activate all of your future applications for this year.  If you would like more informaton about this, please contact your assigned guidance counsellor.
