Connecticut is consistently recognized as having some of the best secondary schools in the United States. A high percentage of students graduating from Ridgefield High School, New Canaan High School, Weston High School, Darien High School, Simsbury High School, Greenwich High School, Hopkins School, Greenwich Academy, Brunswick School, The Taft School and other high schools throughout Connecticut have developed the credentials needed for entry into the nation’s most selective colleges. Yet, many of Connecticut’s students don’t have the guidance and support needed to effectively navigate the college search and admissions process. Current American School Counselor Association (ASCA) estimates show that there are over 500 students for every counselor in Connecticut’s high schools, on average. As a result, students throughout Connecticut often lack the college guidance and help to develop a list of prospective colleges, prepare college applications, craft college essays, plan their extracurricular involvement, complete financial aid forms, secure financial aid and private scholarships and partake in other college admissions-related activities.
At College Transitions, our college counselors and college admissions consultants aim to compensate for the lack of college guidance in Connecticut’s high schools, while meeting the college-related needs of families. For more than a dozen years, the college counselors and college admission planners at College Transitions have helped Connecticut’s students earn admission and succeed at top colleges and universities throughout the United States, including a number of excellent institutions along the east coast, such as Duke University, Vanderbilt University, Davidson College, Georgetown University, Princeton University, Harvard University, Middlebury College, Bowdoin College, and the University of Pennsylvania, among others.
