Bethesda MD College Admissions Consulting

A recent survey of Maryland high schools revealed a student-to-guidance counselor ratio of 362:1, far larger than that recommended by The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC). Consequently, the majority of Maryland residents, including high school students in Bethesda, do not have the level of school-based guidance required to effectively navigate the college search, college application, and college financial aid process. This leads many families in Bethesda to seek college admissions consulting.

With over a decade of experience, College Transitions’ admissions consultants are able to provide Bethesda area students the college counseling they need, in particular, 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. We have offered college guidance to students attending some of the best Bethesda area high schools, including Walt Whitman High School, Walter Johnson High School, Bethesda Chevy Chase High School, John F. Kennedy High School, Wheaton High School, Montgomery Blair High School, Holton-Arms School, Landon School, Georgetown Prep, the Heights School, and Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart, among others.

Our expertise in the admissions world and connections to higher education faculty, administrators and researchers have enabled us to develop a uniquely effective program of services that maximizes our students’ college admission prospects and that has helped them earn admission at the best colleges and universities in Maryland such as Johns Hopkins, Goucher, St. Mary’s, and the University of Maryland as well as schools throughout the United States, including, Georgetown, Stanford, Northwestern, Rice, Swarthmore, Williams, Amherst and every Ivy League institution.

At this time, College Transitions is providing services to students and families residing in Bethesda and surrounding areas, including Potomac, Silver Spring, Rockville, and others.
