High School Planning

Preparing a college resume starts freshman year, but where can a public high school student turn for help?  According to the California State Department of Education, the average ratio of students to counselors in California is 946 : 1.  The typical school counselor is simply overwhelmed by numbers.   I provide counseling around curriculum and activities to help students realize dreams.  Some students know their passion while others are undecided.  I help students identify their interests and articulate their goals.  With a personalized, student-directed plan, we plot a course to reach concrete objectives while still maximizing exploration.  It is very important to start early to avoid missing opportunities.  Counseling areas include:

·         Course selection

·         Extracurricular activities

·         Summer  activities

·         Teacher  relationships

·         Contests and awards

·         Standardized testing schedule

·         Orientation to college selection and touring schedule

·         Major exploration
