Austin College Admissions Consulting

Austin, TX is consistently recognized as having some of the best school systems in the United States. A high percentage of students graduating from Westlake High, Westwood High, Lake Travis High, St. Stephens Episcopal, Austin Peace Academy, Austin Waldorf School and several other Austin area high schools have developed the credentials needed for entry into the nation’s most competitive colleges and universities. However, while Austin, TX students possess the academic prerequisites to achieve college success, they often don’t have the guidance and support needed to navigate the college admissions process and transition into good-fit universities. Current National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC) estimates reveal that there are more than 423 students for every counselor in Texas high schools, on average. As a result, Austin, TX students are often without the necessary support to adequately engage in several tasks associated with the college admission, search, and financial aid process—including developing a list of prospective colleges, preparing college applications, writing college essays, planning extracurricular activities, completing financial aid forms, and identifying private scholarships and other opportunities to receive merit-based funds. This leads many families in Austin to seek college admissions consulting.

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.”
