Fort Myers & Sarasota College Admissions Consulting

The National Association for College Admission Counseling recently found that student-to-counselor ratios in Florida high schools are approaching 500-to-1, and have exceeded 800-to-1 in some areas.  School counselors in Fort Myers and Sarasota, FL are among the best trained in the U.S. and have a clear impact on the academic, social, and emotional well-being of students.  However, growing caseloads and mounting responsibilities in the areas of crisis counseling, academic remediation, and standardized testing have prevented many of Florida’s school counselors from providing the college-related support that students need to successfully navigate the college application process.  As college attendance becomes more costly and complex, Florida students often find themselves lacking the assistance necessary to plan their course of study and extracurricular program, identify prospective colleges, prep for college visits and campus interviews, complete college applications, write college essays, locate scholarships, secure financial aid, and partake in other college admission activities that are important to earning admission at competitive colleges and universities. This is why many Fort Myers and Sarasota area families seek out college admissions consulting.

The admission consultants and college planners at College Transitions strive to build on the efforts of Florida’s competent yet overburdened counselors, namely by offering data-driven college admissions counseling and advice to Southwest Florida-area families, including those residing in Sarasota, Naples, Sanibel, Estero, Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and other locations across Southwest Florida. Our academic background and extensive college counseling and admissions experience have allowed us to guide Florida’s students into selective colleges throughout the United States. Please see our results page for a sampling of institutions into which our students have been accepted.

Recently, College Transitions counselors have provided college planning and consulting services to students attending Fort Myers High, North Fort Myers, Riverdale, Cardinal Mooney Catholic, Riverview, Pine View, and several other local area high schools in Fort Myers, Sarasota and the surrounding areas.  Families wishing to learn more about our services and counseling approach are encouraged to contact us at 678-710-3699 or at [email protected].  You may also fill out our free consultation request form.

“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.”
