How to Book a Guidance Appointment


Due to Covid restrictions, guidance counsellors are currently meeting with students and parents via telephone and email.   We are not scheduling in-person appointments at this time.

If you would like to make an appointment (or have a question you would like answered), please email your guidance counsellor and include the following information:

  1. The reason for the appointment/email.
  2.  Your cohort.  
  3. A phone number where we can reach you.
  4. If you are wanting to make a course change for quadmester 2 or second semester, please indicate the course you would like to remove and add.  Include your parent/guardian email address if you are under the age of 18.

We are now able to accept course change requests for quadmester 2 and semester 2.     Course changes will depend on class and cohort sizes.     We cannot add new courses to quadmester 1.
