Annapolis College Consulting

A recent industry survey revealed that high schools in Maryland offer a student-to-guidance counselor ratio of 362:1. This falls short of the ideal ratio recommended by The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) of 250:1. Unfortunately, this means that the majority of Maryland residents, including high school students in Annapolis, do not have the level of school-based guidance required to effectively engage the college search, college application, and college financial aid process.

With over a decade of college-related and admissions-related experience, College Transitions’ admissions consultants offer Annapolis area students the college counseling they need, specifically by providing support related to high school course planning, extracurricular planning, developing a college resume, building a list of suitable prospective colleges, writing college essays, preparing for college interviews, and applying for financial aid and scholarships. In recent years, we have provided college guidance to students attending some of the best Annapolis area high schools, including Annapolis High School, The Key School, Broadneck, Severna Park, Chesapeake High, Severn School, and Archbishop Spalding.

“College Transitions was responsive, establishing a great rapport with our son, and keeping the process moving in a friendly and helpful way...fine tuning the essays, error checking he applications, and available to answer panicked questions almost around the clock. Sam was accepted into his first choice, The University of Chicago, a school that had seemed out of reach at the beginning of the process.”
