By having access to a comprehensive school counseling program, all students will receive academic, career, personal, and social development support so that they may be college and career ready as they make the transition to future life aspirations.

Professional school counselors lead Queen Creek High School’s comprehensive counseling program. These school counselors collaborate, facilitate, and advocate actions that support student success. Our goal is to deliver services in the three domains of academic, career, and personal/social development and to have every student develop an Educational and Career Action Plan as we address the unique needs of the individual learner. School counselors provide every student the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitude for a productive future through individual, small group, and large group activities with respect for social and cultural differences. Our program promotes lifelong learning and encourages our students to make positive contributions to their community.
