Toronto Catholic District School Board


Guidance teachers are available to advise students about appropriate course choices. The progress of students in achieving the requirements for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma and in completing an education suitable for proceeding with future plans is the responsibility of students and their parents, but is supported by Guidance staff.

Liaison representatives from Ontario's universities and colleges are invited annually to St. John Paul II’s post-secondary fair held in October, so that students may learn about these educational opportunities from the experts. Additionally, a library is maintained in the Guidance Office that contains information about post-secondary institutions across Canada. Guidance teachers provide instruction to guide students through the application processes for college and university programs, as well as for scholarships, bursaries, and the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP).

Students may also get information about the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (O.Y.A.P.), post-secondary apprenticeship opportunities, college certificate programs, opportunities in the trades and preparation for entering the workplace after graduation.

Students are encouraged to consult with Guidance teachers when planning their secondary school goals. They are invited to access all of the resources in the Guidance area.


To make an appointment with your guidance counsellor, please pick up a slip outside the guidance office door and drop in your counsellor’s tray inside.  You will then be called down by your counsellor.


We ask that you call the school and leave a message for your son/daughters counsellor to make an appointment.   Drop in appointments are not advisable as counsellors may not be available.
