The Guidance Team at Ascension of Our Lord Secondary School offers a complete programme of services to ensure a rewarding Catholic secondary school experience. We strive to meet the academic, social and spiritual growth of all of our students.
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.
Parents/Guardians are encouraged to get involved with their child’s learning and we invite them to contact the Guidance Department with any concerns regarding their child.
The Guidance and Career Education Department at ASC strives to meet the goals as prescribed in Choices Into Action from the Ministry of Education program policy. The Goals of Guidance and Career Education are stated as follows:
- Understand the concepts related to lifelong learning, interpersonal relationships and career planning.
- Develop learning and social skills; a sense of social responsibility and the ability to formulate and pursue educational and career goals.
- Apply this learning to their lives and work in the school and in the community.
