Guidance

The Guidance Office is responsible for providing a caring, compassionate environment that is inviting to all who enter. As guidance counsellors and educators, our role has been organized into three distinct areas:

  • student development;
  • interpersonal development; and
  • career development as it relates to pathway planning.

Our counsellors are equipped to provide ongoing academic, social/emotional, and pathway planning supports for our students. We encourage students to take an active role as vibrant, positive members of our school community and lifelong learners.

Our services

Make a Guidance Appointment 
 

We welcome you to speak to a guidance counsellor regarding any questions you have about navigating your way through your high school experience and beyond. Making an appointment is easy.

  1. Come in to Guidance before school begins, on your spare (Grade 12 students only), or on your lunch.
  2. Ask the guidance secretary that you would like to speak with your guidance counsellor.
  3. Tell her either your last name or the name of your counsellor.

Things to remember...

  • Appointments are 10 minutes in length;
  • Only students on a spare can book an appointment during their spare. No student should book appointments
        during class time;
  • Any additional time with a counsellor can be determined between the counsellor and student; and
  • All parents should notify their child's counsellor to book either an appointment by phone or in person.
Register for School 

We welcome students of all faiths at our Durham Catholic secondary schools. Any prospective students who are new to the Durham Catholic District school Board must completed an online student application.

Once the online application is completed, prospective students new to Monsignor Paul Dwyer Catholic High School must complete:

  • a pre-admission package (Note: this exclude any students transferring from an associate elementary school who live within the school's boundary). 
  • print off the package using the attached link, complete and submit to our Guidance office with all required documentation.
