Delaware County, PA College Admissions Consulting

Delaware County, Pennsylvania is widely considered as a pre-eminent producer of high achieving college applicants. Students attending Garnet Valley, Haverford Senior, Penncrest, Strath Haven, Marple Newtown, Radnor Senior, Cardinal O’hara, Monsignor Bonner, Archbishop John Carroll, and other area high schools are provided with excellent instruction and have access to the social and human capital needed to develop college-ready credentials; however student-to-counselor ratios in Delaware County are exceedingly high, and reach 400-to-1 at some schools. While Delaware County school counselors are among the best trained nationwide, multiple job roles, dwindling budgets, and increasingly high caseloads have left them without the support and time needed to provide adequate college admissions counseling and guidance. As such, Delaware County students often need to look elsewhere for guidance on college list development, college application planning, college essay writing, financial aid and scholarship guidance and a host of other college admissions-related tasks. This is why many Delaware County, PA families seek out private college consulting services.
