Student Transcripts Service (STS) – Grade 12 students planning to attend post-secondary must log on to the STS website to select what post-secondary schools will receive their transcripts electronically from the Ministry of Education.  More information and instructions can be found on the EMCS website.

It is imperative that all students have their current address in the student information system or the delivery of transcripts and diplomas will be sent to the incorrect address.  If you suspect your address is not up to date please come to the office ASAP.
