Guidance Department

At Cochrane High we believe in a Comprehensive Counselling and Guidance Model, which means we provide:

  • Post Secondary Guidance
  • Career Passion and Confidence
  • Personal Counselling
  • Leadership Development
  • Academic Counselling

Students and parents are encouraged to consult the counsellors about academic, vocational and personal concerns by making an appointment with the appropriate  grade level Guidance Counsellor.

Many educational events are coordinated with the Career Centre. Students and parents can keep updated by checking that section of our website.
