Comprehensive Competency-Based Guidance

The Guidance and Counseling program is based on the Comprehensive Competency-Based Guidance format (CCBG). The school counselor presents the counseling curriculum during the year to the students at East Valley Academy.

This curriculum is offered in one-on-one conferences, small group activities and/or large group presentations. The premise of CCBG — that certain information needs to be presented to all students during their high school years — has been endorsed by the school district, the Arizona School Counselors Association and the American School Counselor Association.


The counselor is on campus from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily during the regular school year. Although walk-ins are permitted, an appointment is the best way to ensure that the counselor will be available to meet with a student and/or parent.

Parents or students may make counseling appointments by contacting the school office in person or by calling (480) 472-9359. Students may be excused from class for brief periods to meet with the counselor.
