Harper Creek High School Counselors make every effort to meet the academic, postsecondary, and social emotional needs of every single student at HCHS. We aim to do this by providing individual, small group, and classroom counseling sessions to students across diverse topics as frequently as possible. School Counselors will work with students and parents on scheduling, navigating the complexities of postsecondary planning, career exploration, and managing personal issues. 

School Counselors will also help students to complete their Educational Development Plans (EDP's), provide recommendations, offer occupational guidance, help students to locate information relevant to their plans after high school, and assist with scholarship information. In addition, we are here to assist students with other matters such as: attendance, organization, and motivation. While we do not provide long term psychotherapy, we can help provide referrals to local mental health organizations. 

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have!
