I am a grandparent, standing in for my daughter who cannot devote the time to help her son through the college application process. My grandson is a high achieving low income student, 4.32GPA, 5s on the two AP classes he took and is now a high school senior. He will take his first (and only) SAT this Wednesday (others cancelled because of covid). He is an out of the box student who likes to challenge the status quo with sardonic( and very funny) sense of humor. He will have taken all the AP classes available to him at his school and will have done 6 classes dual credit - all with A's. Not many traditional extras curriculars He has had a difficult home situation with a father on disability with PTSD. He comes from a family who did a 'back to the land' thing in the 60's and has largely grown up on that piece of land. He is concerned about climate change and wants to learn hands on ways to mitigate the terrible fire danger we, in California, live with. He is also passionate about Chemistry.
Generally, I just need support in my role. And maybe some guidance. It kind of scares me to be in this role. I have seen this kid's extraordinary intellect since he was knee high. Any support and suggestions would be appreciated.
