STUDENT SERVICES (905-772-3302)

Welcome to the beginning of a new semester! This semester we will be unveiling our new option selection system, which will be done entirely online! Grade nine students have already started this process, with grade tens, elevens and returning twelves learning the new procedure during the month of February. All parents and guardians are encouraged to get involved with the course selection process and know what your son/daughter is planning for next year. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this new procedure, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail me at the school.

Post-secondary bound students may be receiving acceptances to programs between now and June. Please check your status online frequently as acceptances tend to first appear in online applications. After confirming an acceptance, students may wish to explore residence information and financial planning. Please make a guidance appointment to discuss options regarding preparation for post-secondary programmes.

Parents are always welcome to phone or e-mail myself or Ann Smith about course choices, student progress or post-secondary information. The guidance number is 905-772-3302 and our email addresses are: ann.smith@granderie.ca and john.drynan@granderie.ca .
