Fairfax County VA College Admissions Consulting

Fairfax County, Virginia is highly regarded as having some of the best high schools in the United States. Students enrolling at Thomas Jefferson (TJHSST), McLean, Madison, Oakton, Langley, Woodson, Marshall, Herndon, and other area high schools are offered the instruction needed to qualify for admission into highly competitive colleges and universities. Yet, with a student-to-school counselor ratio of more than 350-to-1, many Fairfax County schools are unable offer their students adequate college planning support. While Fairfax’s school-based counselors are among the most qualified nationwide, growing caseloads, diminishing budgets, and an array of new job roles have prevented them from devoting sufficient time to essential admission related-tasks, such as college list development, resume building, college application review, college essay coaching, and financial aid planning, among others. This is why many Fairfax County families seek out private college consulting services.

The college counselors and college admission consultants at College Transitions aim to augment the efforts of Fairfax’s educators by offering responsive and data-driven college admissions advising to Northern Virginia’s students and their families. With nearly 15 years of college admission and planning experience, our counselors have guided Fairfax students into a variety of top colleges and universities, including many in their own “backyard” such as University of Virginia, William & Mary, University of Richmond, Georgetown, George Washington, Johns Hopkins, Washington & Lee, Virginia Tech, and many others. We are proud of our students’ accomplishments, and are devoted to ensuring that they earn admission at the colleges that are right for them.

In recent years, College Transitions has offered college admission consulting and guidance to Fairfax County students residing in Alexandria, Clifton, Herndon, Vienna, McLean, Annandale, Centreville, Reston, and other Fairfax locations.
