Please Stay Up to Date

 I highly recommend that parents become involved in their son or daughter’s scholarship search and application process. Many applications and many deadlines are missed as students get busier throughout the school year and put things aside. I urge all Grade 12 parents to add their names to my email list so that I can provide updates directly to you. Please send an email to and ask to be added to the email list.

The Academic Counselling Department

 At St. John Brebeuf our goal is to assist our students in pursuing post-secondary options and workplace options that are best-suited to their interests and aptitudes. To support our students along this path we provide academic counselling and career planning through the Academic Counselling Department. The Department is open on an appointment or drop-in basis throughout the day to assist students with course selections, career planning, university, college or trades program research and general academic support. Together, the Academic Counselling Department and Learning Centre coordinate a highly effective Peer Tutoring program in which senior students provide academic assistance to other students in the school. The Academic Counselling Department also provides information on external and internal scholarships and external testing (TOEFL, SAT, ACT, etc.) and assists students with work experience placements.
