​Student Services

The student services department at Transcona Collegiate is comprised of 2 counsellors and  2.5 resource teachers. Student services personnel work with students, teachers, and parents addressing the emotional, academic, attendance, and behavioural concerns that may impede student success. Student services also offers information and a variety of skills necessary for decision making and success beyond high school.

Counselling Program Goals

Transcona Collegiate counselling program is designed to meet all of our students' needs. Students/parents can access counselling services for the following reasons:

- Course selection that will lead to future goals 
- Entrance Requirements for post-secondary institutes 
- Support for obstacles that may be preventing school success 
- To connect with supportive agencies 
- Job and volunteer opportunities 
- Award/financial support for post-secondary training 
- Alternate school placements 
- Internet connection to work, university, college, career decision making, and many more web sites


Students have the right to speak to a counselor in confidence unless there is a reason to believe the student may harm themselves or someone else, or if it is ordered by the courts to release information.
