Some of the many services that we provide to assist in the cultivation of student success are:

  • Referral to our internal support staff (ex. Social Worker, Child and Youth Worker, Psychologist) or to outside community agencies

  • Education about and referral to alternative programs/schools that may suit student based on unique needs

  • Volunteer and job opportunities advertised through announcements and postings


2) Assisting with Educational Planning

  • Awareness of O.S.S.D and post secondary requirements

  • Course selection and timetable changes

  • Credit courses available outside of regular day school - night school, summer school, and virtual school options

  • Peer tutoring through our after-school program

  • Up-to-date post secondary prospects – including out-of-Ontario

  • Financial aid resources - scholarships, loans, and bursaries

3) Supporting Career Planning/Provision of Career Information

  • Compulsory Careers credit course in Gr.10

  • Interest inventories to allow students to discover possible destinations appropriate to their passion

  • Referral to online programs (ex. Career Cruising. www.MyBluePrint.ca) that allow for career exploration

Every student at Humberside CI is assigned a guidance counsellor with whom he/she can discuss post-secondary plans, academic concerns and/or personal concerns.

Students are encouraged to visit their assigned Counsellor by booking a time in the appointment book available in the Guidance reception area in the morning, during lunch or after school. Upon completion of an appointment, a student will receive an admit slip to return to class.
