Guidance
Welcome to Guidance Services at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School. Our department aims to serve students, parents, staff and community agencies by providing academic and career education guidance, post secondary pathway planning, and student support interventions in keeping with high school Ministry of Education curriculum student success initiatives and policy.

A major focus for our team, in this growing school community, continues to be on building education-business-community partnerships to enhancing experiential learning opportunities for our students outside the classroom. This year, we also look forward to working with the Class 2014 as they plan their post secondary destinations. Please review information posted on the Guidance Services web information and quick links. Let us know if we can provide additional services by clicking on our contact information on this page or calling us at 613-445-0810 extension 405.

University and College Application Dates and Financial Assistance
NEW OSAP REMOVING FINANCIAL BARRIERS TO COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY

If your child is currently in Grade 12, you should know that applications are now open for college and university programs. The last date for university applications is January 11th. College applications for the fall term should be submitted before February 1st.

Your child may benefit from financial assistance for postsecondary education from the Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP). As part of the most significant reform of student assistance in North America, the government of Ontario is removing the financial barriers to attending college or university.

If your family income is under $50,000, your child’s tuition is covered. Even if you earn more, the new OSAP is still there to help with generous grants that will make sending your child to college or university more affordable.

The Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development has launched a new online calculator to help students and their families find out quickly and easily whether they qualify for free tuition or other grants and supports from the province. We encourage you to find out more at ontario.ca/osap.

Math Homework Help Grade 7-10
Math online tutors are available for students in Grades 7 to 10 from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm from Sunday to Thursday. Register for free at tvo.org/homeworkhelp. Homework Help resources are diverse, covering the key skills learned in grades 7 to 10. Resources are skill based, not sorted by grade, making them welcoming to learners filling their gaps.
