Welcome to HT Student Services!

Our staff work with your teen to provide academic and career counselling. Students are constantly transitioning during their secondary school experience: from elementary to secondary, from semester to semester, from intermediate to senior level, from secondary to post-secondary. These transitions require planning, research and the expertise of the Guidance Counsellor. Our job is to help in whatever way possible, and that help can come in many forms. We also help students with non-academic concerns and work closely with our Social Worker to connect students to community programs that can help.
