Asheville College Admissions Consulting

Current estimates released by the American School Counselor Association indicate that average student-to-counselor ratios in Asheville area high schools are alarmingly high, and exceed 350-to-1 at many places. Asheville area school and guidance counselors are among the best anywhere and play an extremely important role in the academic, social, and emotional development of our children. However, manifold job roles and increasing responsibilities in the areas of mental health and therapeutic support have left many Asheville area school counselors unable to adequately assist in the areas of college planning, college counseling, and college admissions guidance. This leads many families in Asheville to seek college admissions consulting.

Although the college admissions process at the nation’s most selective colleges and universities has become more complex and demanding, Asheville area students are increasingly unable to access the college-related support they need to develop a list of target colleges, organize campus visits, prep for college interviews, prepare college applications, write college essays, navigate the financial aid and scholarship process and engage in several other college admissions-related activities that are essential to finding and transitioning into a good-fit higher education institution.

College Transitions endeavors to supplement the critical work of Asheville’s school counselors and provide responsive, evidence-based college planning and admissions support to Asheville area students, including those attending Asheville High, T.C. Roberson High, AC Reynolds High, Charles D. Owen High, Carolina Day School, Asheville School and other Asheville area high schools.  Our academic and publishing credentials, along with our extensive college counseling and admissions background, permit us to offer a unique and unrivaled program of college planning services.

Past Asheville area students working with College Transitions have earned admission into some of the best colleges and universities throughout the United States, including several in North Carolina, such as UNC Chapel Hill, NC State, UNC-Asheville, Duke, and Davidson College.

College Transitions' Asheville admissions consulants have recently provided college guidance and consulting to families residing in a number of Asheville area neighborhoods and surrounding areas, including Lakeview Park, Montford, Biltmore Forest, Biltmore Lake, Kenilworth, and Crest Mountain. If you would like more information about our services and how we can help guide you through the college admissions process, please call us at 706-389-9936 or email us at [email protected].  You may also fill out our free consultation request form and a College Transitions counselor will respond to you promptly.

“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.”
