Buffalo College Consulting

Research conducted by the American School Counselor Association reveals that average student-to-counselor ratios in the Buffalo metro area are nearing 420-to-1, and are as high as 800-to-1 at some Buffalo area 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 Buffalo 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 Buffalo area students and their families can no longer rely on their schools for assistance involving the 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. This leads many Buffalo families to seek out college consulting.

Our Buffalo college consultants strive to meet the outstanding college-related needs of Buffalo’s families by providing comprehensive college admissions consulting services to high school students throughout the Buffalo metro area, including those attending Williamsville East High School, Clarence Senior High School, East Aurora High School, Orchard Park High School, Grand Island Senior High School, Nardin Academy, Nichols School, The Gow School, The Park School of Buffalo 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.
