Choice of Course
Choosing the right course is an important factor in graduating on time. Career counseling sessions are provided to students who are undecided on their chosen course. This is intended to avoid shifting from one course to another so that the student could graduate on time.
As your counselors, we believe that teen sexuality should not be ignored. Rather, we believe that it is best that students are kept well informed about the topic and that no issues are left unanswered. As a Catholic institution, we firmly believe in the value of human life, personal dignity and respect, and the advocacy of sexual responsibility through chastity education.
As part of its No Student Left Behind campaign, the Guidance Counselors conduct academic counseling and teachers/parents consultation for students who are having academic difficulties. Tutorials are also arranged with the Office of Student Affairs and University Scholarship and Grants Office when needed.
Peer Support Group
The Guidance Caring Connections (GCC) serve as extension arm of the Guidance Counselors in reaching out to their co-students during online and face-to-face classes. The GCC members are provided seminars, training and exposure to the guidance services to effectively perform their duties to their peers.
