Boulder CO College Admissions Consulting

According to the National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC), Colorado public schools offer one guidance counselor per 300+ high school students. This number is worse than the national average and well above the industry recommended ratio of 250:1. As a consequence, the majority of Colorado residents, including high school students in the Boulder area, do not have the school-based guidance required to effectively engage the college search, college application, and college financial aid process. This is why many Boulder area families seek out college admissions consulting.

College Transitions’ college counselors and college admissions consultants possess more than a decade of experience and can offer Boulder 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.

Over the past years, we have provided college guidance to students attending some of the best Boulder area high schools, including: Boulder High School, Fairview, Monarch, Lakewood, Peak to Peak Charter, and Ralston Valley High School, among others. Our college admissions expertise and connections to higher education faculty, administrators and researchers have enabled us provide a uniquely effective program of services that maximizes our students’ college admission prospects and has helped them earn admission at the best colleges and universities in Colorado, such as Colorado College, Colorado State, and the University of Colorado, as well as the best institutions nationally, including Pomona, UC Berkeley, Stanford, Rice, Vanderbilt, Middlebury, Amherst, and every Ivy League institution.

Currently, College Transitions is providing services to students and families residing in Boulder, Applewood, Superior, Lafayette, and Northglenn. Families wishing to learn more about our background, services and pricing may contact us at 678-710-3699 or at [email protected].  We also offer our prospective families a free consultation.

“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.”
