Grade Specific Reminders

Grade 12:  Research, research, research!  Post-secondary planning is crucial!  What school do you want to go to?  Which school offers the program of your choice?  What courses and what grades do I need?

Start with your IPP.  Career Cruising holds valuable information and live links to every college and university.  Do your research there first, then go to www.electronicinfo.ca or www.ontariocolleges.ca to find out more.  Take the time to actually visit and tour the college or university of your choice.  What does it feel like?  look like?  how close or far is it from home?  There will be a visit to the College Fair in January.  Make the most of your opportunities and explore the next step.

Financial planning is an important step to your post-secondary life.  Make sure you know how you are going to pay for your post-secondary education.  Check out Get Smarter About Money for more information.  Scholarship information is available in guidance.  Please see attached list from A to Z Scholarships from A to Z.docx

Grade 11: You will be making some very important decisions when picking courses for next year. Take the time to review the post secondary programs that you are thinking of and make sure that you are familiar with the pre requisites that are required. Make an appointment with your guidance counsellor to review these pre-requisites if needed.

Grade 10: 
Don't forget to update your IPP.  Career Cruising has valuable information regarding career exploration and course planning.  Many features of this program will be explored in your GLC2O class.  If you took GLC2O in the summer and are not familiar with the program, please make sure you see Ms. McNally for your academic planning.

Grade 9:  Guidance orientations took place on August 30th.  For students who were not able to attend, individual sessions have been arranged.  Important dates to remember: Wednesday October 18th:  Grade 9 Retreat and Wednesday November 1st: Take Our Kids to Work day.
