The Student Services Department is a resource to help students during their time at Chippewa. Student Services can help direct and prepare students for the future. There is a wealth of information to assist students with course selections, apprenticeships, career development and post-secondary education.
Guidance Counsellors: Kim Larivee, Steph Silverthorn, Nicole Cartwright.
Through their courses, students can explore career and interest options, complete compulsory credits and earn prerequisites for post-secondary programs. Students can browse the online Course Calendar and begin guided course selections in February. Grade 8 students begin learning in December about high school courses and credits.
Students may access our guidance counsellors, or youth counsellor, Kerri Renaud by making an appointment or by chance dropping in. We offer the opportunity to talk about careers, courses or personal issues in a friendly, confidential environment. Have a problem? Let us help!
Students who are struggling with course materials are encouraged to speak with their classroom teacher first. Additional support during focus period is available from the Student Success classroom (rm. 256). Students looking for tutoring can ask for the list in the guidance office. A variety of student and teacher tutors in a number of subject areas are available. Online resources are also listed.
