COUNSELING MISSION STATEMENT
Our Counseling mission is to promote social/emotional well-being, academic progress and personal development for all students.

We help students to form healthy choices, to acquire a sense of civic responsibility and to develop the skills necessary to realize their individual goals. Together, we support access and equality for all learners and encourage collaboration in our school and community.
CONFIDENTIALITY
A counseling relationship requires an atmosphere of trust and confidence, which must not be compromised by the counselor except where there is a clear and present danger to the counselee or to other persons. The School Counselor may share information gained in the counseling process for essential consultations with other appropriate persons specifically concerned with the student.
REFERRAL PROCESS
For Students: The Counseling office is open during regular hours of the school day. Students are welcome to stop by at any point. If the counselor is busy, appointments can be made.

For Faculty: If a faculty member is concerned about a student, he/she will contact the Grade Level Coordinator (GLC) or the Counselor directly.

For Parents: If parents are concerned about their son/daughter or would like to talk to the counselor, they should contact the Student Affairs officer or the Homeroom Supervisor to set up a meeting. Translation for the meeting can be provided.
INDIVIDUAL AND GROUP COUNSELING
The School Counsellor is available for individual and group counselling. Individual counselling can revolve around anything having to do with relationships, stress management, bullying, friendship, depression, trolling, emotions, eating disorders and any other concern. It is important to note that all things discussed throughout counselling will remain confidential unless the behaviour discussed concerns harm to oneself or others.
