Guidance and Career Education

Each student at Madawaska Valley District High School has access to a Guidance Counsellor. 

Guidance Counsellors assist students with their transition to and from secondary school.   They also assist students with making course requests, making timetable changes, and planning their academic pathway. They are also available for students to talk to about any other issues affecting their well-being and progress through their secondary school years.

See careercruising for course(s) offered in this discipline.

See Student Services for further information, forms, and links relevant to Guidance and Career Education at our school.
