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 400-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. 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 AC Reynolds High, Charles D. Owen High, Enka 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.
