Counselling & Student Support Services

Counselling Services

A counsellor is available during the day at the Navigate Tsolum Campus for academic and career guidance. We  provide assistance with cross enrollment questions:

  • registration for distributed learning and online courses
  • course planning              
  • graduation options
  • career information
  • post-secondary education planning             
  • scholarship and bursary information
  • and other questions students may feel they would like to discuss in a confidential environment.  

We can also facilitate referrals to community agencies who can offer students specific help such as medical, legal or financial aid. We encourage students and parents to contact a counsellor at any time via phone or email.  Appointments can also be made by phoning a counsellor or the main office staff.
