Hartford, CT College Admissions Consulting

The Hartford area is home to some of the best high schools in Connecticut—including Simsbury, Glastonbury, Conard, Farmington, Avon, The Master’s School, Westminster, Kingswood-Oxford, Northwest Catholic, Xavier, and Mercy, to name a few—and while attendees receive excellent instruction and are surrounded by high-achieving peer groups, they typically cannot secure the individualized guidance and support needed to navigate the college search and application process and ultimately enroll at a good-fit institution. Recent studies show that student-to-counselor ratios at many Connecticut high schools approach 400-to-1, and that students receive only 30 minutes of one-to-one college guidance per year, on average. This is why many Hartford area families seek private college consulting.

At College Transitions, our team of college planning experts and admission consultants aim to supplement the efforts of Hartford’s school-based counselors in order to meet the college-related needs of Hartford students and their families. We provide a full array college counseling services encompassing college list development, course planning, standardized testing strategy, college application review, essay coaching, prep for college interviews, financial aid guidance and numerous other college planning activities. Our counselors have more than 15 years of college planning and consulting experience and have worked with thousands of students possessing a variety of backgrounds, interests, and abilities. Past College Transitions students have attended the best colleges and universities in the U.S., including several in or near Connecticut, including Yale University, Connecticut College, Wesleyan, Trinity College, Tufts University, Boston College, University of Connecticut, New York University, and others. Please see our results page for a sampling of college acceptances.

Currently, our college planners and consultants at College Transitions serve families residing in Glastonbury, Simsbury, Granby, West Hartford and other Hartford area locations. We are committed to serving Hartford, CT families for many years to come, and pride ourselves on offering responsive and comprehensive support. The college admissions process has changed in recent years, but that doesn’t mean it has to be more stressful or confusing. Our team can help you find, apply, and transition at the colleges and universities that are right for you.

“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.”

However, College Transitions immediately settled my fears and supported me through every aspect of that process...-I just got back from Bulldog Days at Yale, and I still cannot believe that I was accepted. Thanks to your help, I got to see my dream come true."
