At St. Marcellinus, our Guidance program will provide students with an understanding of the concepts in the three areas of learning: personal, interpersonal, and career development. Students will gain an understanding of concepts related to lifelong learning, interpersonal relationships, and career planning. They will also develop learning skills, social skills, a sense of social responsibility, and the ability to formulate and pursue educational and career goals.
Individual, academic, and personal counselling are important roles of the Guidance Department. We will provide instruction in Guidance and Career Education through credit courses and individual counselling. Working collectively with students, we will guide them towards graduation and a successful transition to the post secondary challenges of apprenticeship, college, university and the workplace.
