Connecticut College Admissions Consulting

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. This is why many Connecticut families seek out private college admissions consulting

“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.”
