Houston College Consulting. The Houston Chronicle recently reported that student-to-counselor ratios have exceeded 500-to-1 in the Houston area, and exceed 700-to-1 at some Houston high schools. School counselors play an important role in the academic and personal development of high school students, but they are increasingly unable to provide the college-related support and college admissions guidance their students need. Compelled to focus more intensely on academic remediation and student discipline, many Houston area guidance counselors have de-emphasized or abandoned college admissions counseling altogether, despite the fact that the college admissions has become a more complex and time consuming process. As a result, the majority of Houston’s students do not have school-based guidance required to effectively engage the college search, college application, and college financial aid process.
With more than a decade of college-related and admissions-related experience, College Transitions college counselors and college admissions consultants offer Houston area students the college counseling they need, specifically by providing support related to high school course planning, extracurricular planning, developing a college resume, building a list of suitable prospective colleges, writing college essays, preparing for college interviews, and applying for financial aid and scholarships. In the past several years, we have provided college guidance to students attending some of the best Houston area high schools, including Cypress Ranch, Cypress Woods, Kingwood, Memorial, Stratford, Alexander Smith, St. Agnes, St. John’s, Strake Jesuit, John Cooper, and Kinkaid, among others. Our college admissions expertise and connections to higher education faculty, administrators and researchers have enabled us provide a uniquely effective program of services that maximizes our students’ college admission prospects and has helped them earn admission at the best colleges and universities in Texas and throughout the United States, including Rice, UT Austin, SMU, Vanderbilt, Emory, Northwestern, MIT, Stanford, and every Ivy League institution.
Currently, College Transitions is providing services to students and families residing in Katy, Sugarland, West University, Bellaire, River Oaks, Cypress, Clear Lake City, and other Houston locations.
