Jonathan Zucker

High School Placement Counselor

Jonathan Zucker (“JZ”), High School Placement Counselor, joins Prospect Sierra after serving for eight years as the Admissions Director at College Prep in Oakland. He has also consulted with schools regarding admissions and last year worked as Park Day’s High School Placement Coordinator. JZ has a master’s degree in social work from UC Berkeley which serves him well in the “counseling aspects” of the position. When sharing about how eighth graders might hold themselves in the high school admissions process, JZ shares: “I encourage students to be beautifully selfish. It’s about them, after all. High school is not a means to an end. It is an important four years of development. It should be fun. It should be hard work. Students should thrive and belong.”
