Research conducted by the American School Counselor Association reveals that average student-to-counselor ratios in the Brooklyn area are nearing 420-to-1, and are as high as 700-to-1 at some Brooklyn high schools. Guidance counselors are an essential part of our education system and aid the personal, social and academic development of students. Yet, they are increasingly unable to offer adequate college planning and support. Often compelled to address the more immediate needs of their students, school counselors in Brooklyn and other areas throughout New York spent less, not more, time on college-related tasks in recent years, despite the fact that the college admissions process has become more complex. As a result, many Brooklyn area students and their families can no longer rely on their schools for assistance involving college search, college list development, college essay coaching, college application review, extracurricular planning, college interview prep, financial aid and scholarship guidance and other critical college planning tasks.
College Transitions strives to meet the outstanding college-related needs of Brooklyn’s families by providing comprehensive college admissions consulting services to high school students throughout the Brooklyn area, including those attending Brooklyn Technical High School, The Brooklyn Latin School, Midwood High, Leon M. Goldstein High, Medgar Evers College Preparatory School, Bedford Academy High, and Edward R. Murrow High among others. Our academic background and extensive college planning and admissions experience enable us to provide a level of service that few others can offer. In the past, we have helped Brooklyn area students earn admission at the nation’s best colleges and universities in the United States, including many the Northeast, such as NYU, University of Rochester, Amherst College, Williams College, Boston College, Middlebury College, Northeastern University, Smith College, Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University and others.
