Brooks Secondary School
Striving to be the best
Brooks Counselling Department

Our goal is to enable students to improve their lives by engaging in reflection, developing self-regulation and effective problem solving skills

This is accomplished through course planning, career and vocational guidance, and personal one-to-one counselling. At Brooks Secondary, we are committed to supporting students on an individual basis as well as acting as a liaison between the school and community based resources. Counselling services are available for all students. Counsellors assist students with academic, career, and personal counselling.

Academic Counselling

Students who are experiencing any difficulty in a course should contact the counsellors for assistance. Counsellors help students with educational planning and course selection to fulfill graduation requirements, prepare for job opportunities, and post secondary entrance requirements, and other program requirements.

Career Advising

Students are encouraged to speak to the Career Coordinator in determining future career possibilities, and career trends. Mr. Palm will be to assist students interested in Dual Credit programs
