College counselor rec, willing to work with a 9th grader
Hi, We are looking for recommendations for a private college counselor to work with our 9th grade child who attends an Oakland public high school and has a strong interest in Drama - ideally checking in once or twice per year on classes, grades, interests and then additionally more specific college suggestions to look at / research by 11th, and finally the addition of essay / application support by 12th grade. We are in that category of don't make enough to afford private high school, but make too much for aid when they graduate go on to college, but our child is a pretty good student and could use just some guidance, suggestions, support - and likely will listen to it better from someone who is an expert in this area as opposed to us. We want to support his interest in Drama, but also want him to use his strong academic skills to have a back up major for work with decent pay and benefits to help support himself while pursuing his passion. Any good recommendations publicly or privately are appreciated. Thanks .
