Cleveland College Consulting

The Cleveland area includes some of the best high schools in Ohio and the Midwest. Students attending Solon High, Rocky River High, Kenston High, Avon Lake High, Hathaway Brown, Hawken, and several other top-notch high schools have access to excellent instruction, advanced learning technology, and academically competitive peers. Yet, while many Cleveland area students have capitalized upon such advantages to develop college-ready credentials, most experience difficulty accessing college-related support, specifically the help needed to earn admission into suitable, good-fit colleges and universities.  Recent estimates by the National Association for College Admission Counseling indicate that student-to-counselor ratios at Cleveland area high schools are approaching 500-to-1, and suggest that Cleveland area students are likely to receive only 30 minutes of individual college guidance from their high schools each year—not nearly the amount of time most need to successfully move through the college admissions process. This is why many Cleveland area families seek out private college admissions consulting.

The college admission counselors and consultants at College Transitions aim to meet the outstanding admission-related needs of Cleveland-area families, particularly by offering a host of admissions counseling services, including, but not limited to, college application review, college essay coaching, resume development, college interview preparation, standardized testing strategies, extracurricular and course planning, and financial aid and scholarship guidance. Our Cleveland college consultants and independent college counselors have decades of college admissions and planning experience and have leveraged their academic background and professional networks to guide students into top colleges and universities across Ohio, the Midwest, and the United States. Nearby college and universities into which our students have been admitted include Case Western Reserve, Ohio State, Kenyon College, Oberlin College and others. We’ve also guided Cleveland’s students into top institutions across the country, including MIT, UC Berkeley, Georgia Tech, Yale, and Columbia, among others. Please navigate to our results page for a list of other institutions into which our past students have been accepted.

College Transitions counselors and consultants have worked with families living throughout the Cleveland area, including Solon, Avon Lake, Moreland Hills, Pepper Pike, Hudson, Shaker Heights, Orange, Rocky River, and other Cleveland locations. The admissions process at selective colleges and universities may have become more complex and competitive, but it does not have to prove a more stressful experience. Let our team guide you.
