As students head into their final year of high school, forefront on the minds of many are questions surrounding post-secondary schooling, scholarship availability, and application deadlines. In an effort to provide the most up-to-date resources, Student Services houses a wealth of information on post-secondary institutions, work experience opportunities, financial support, study abroad experiences, the RAP program, and building your own personal portfolio. We also host a number of events throughout the year to support our graduating students as they plan for their future.
