In order to ensure you are aware of all matters related to guidance it is IMPERATIVE that every student join the grade-appropriate Guidance Google Classroom. This is the main method of communication that will be used for all your guidance needs (i.e. course changes, pathway planning, guidance appointments etc).

At St. Edmund Campion, our Guidance Department will provide students with an understanding of the concepts in the three areas of learning: personal, interpersonal, and career development. Students will gain an understanding of concepts related to lifelong learning, interpersonal relationships, and career planning. They will also develop learning skills, social skills, a sense of social responsibility, and the ability to formulate and pursue educational and career goals.
Individual, academic, and personal counselling are important roles of the Guidance Department. We will provide instruction in Guidance and Career Education through credit courses and individual counselling. Working collectively with students, we will guide them towards graduation and a successful transition to the post secondary challenges of apprenticeship, college, university and the workplace.
Parents/Guardians are encouraged to get involved with their child’s learning and we invite them to contact the Guidance Department with any concerns regarding their child.

Special Services Team
Child & Youth Worker
Child and Youth Workers of the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board respond to the social/emotional and behavioural needs of students through direct intervention and consultation. Child and Youth Workers support, advocate, and facilitate on behalf of students. CYWs also contribute to the development and implementation of preventative programs to foster healthy school environments, in collaboration with other professionals, family, and community.
School Social Worker
The school social worker is a School Board appointed resource person available to the community of St. Edmund Campion Secondary School. As a member of the school support team, the Social Worker may provide counselling to individual students, groups of students or families with referrals to specialized community resources. The School Social Worker is designated as the Attendance Counsellor for St. Edmund Campion. Students of compulsory school age who are absent from school without a legitimate reason may be referred to the Social Worker/Attendance Counsellor. The Social Worker is available to meet with students and their families at school or at their homes. The Social Worker has other assignments with the St. Edmund Campion Family of Schools and, therefore, is not always available at St. Edmund Campion. At times when there is an urgent need to contact the Social Worker, students can contact the school.
The school psychologist is a health professional extensively trained in assessment and treatment. He/she uses specialized knowledge of human behaviour, emotion, personality and mental processes to make diagnoses. He/she uses her/his therapeutic skills to help people make healthy changes in their coping style, as well as emotional and behavioural patterns. Our school psychologist is available to meet with students, teachers, counsellors, principals and parents regarding any student who is experiencing academic, behavioural, social or emotional problems.
