University Guidance

Shawnigan's team of guidance counsellors is ready to help students prepare for their post-secondary journeys.

Whether applying to a university or college, a technical school or art program, or planning a gap year or work experience, our team can help navigate the process from beginning to end.

We offer a superior level of service and expertise, including:

  • Student-centred advising
  • University information sessions by visiting representatives
  • Skype interviews with Shawnigan grads currently attending university
  • Appropriate assistance to work through application and admission requirements
  • A Grad Advisory Council offering support as students leave Shawnigan and enter the post-secondary world
  • Regular communication with parents about the application process
