College Counseling

Brandon King

College Counselor and History & Social Sciences Teacher

I teach economics and world history and serve as a faculty college counselor, an assistant baseball coach, and an Assistant Director of Summer Programming. Before coming to Ransom Everglades, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. I earned my PhD in Chinese studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong after earning master’s degrees from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the University of London, School of Oriental and African Studies. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy hiking, cycling, traveling and researching philosophy from China’s Warring States Period.
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
