Guidance and Career Education
Thornlea's Guidance Department provides a broad range of programs and services for our students, their parents/guardians and the school community. Guidance counsellors address questions and concerns regarding high school program planning and academic success, post-secondary educational alternatives and career choices. In addition, counsellors assist students with personal and social/emotional issues. Students will be assigned a counsellor according to their surname.  Appointments may be arranged in the Guidance Office or by calling 905-889-9696, extension 207.
