Welcome to Guidance Services at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School. Our department aims to serve students, parents, staff and community agencies by providing academic and career education guidance, post secondary pathway planning, and student support interventions in keeping with high school Ministry of Education curriculum student success initiatives and policy.
A major focus for our team, in this growing school community, continues to be on building education-business-community partnerships to enhancing experiential learning opportunities for our students outside the classroom. This year, we also look forward to working with the Class 2014 as they plan their post secondary destinations. Please review information posted on the Guidance Services web information and quick links. Let us know if we can provide additional services by clicking on our contact information on this page or calling us at 613-445-0810 extension 405.
