Houston College Admissions Consulting

The Houston Chronicle recently reported that student-to-counselor ratios have exceeded 400-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 process has become more complex and time consuming. As a result, the majority of Houston’s students do not have the school-based guidance required to effectively engage the college search, college application, and college financial aid process. This is why many Houston area families seek out private college admissions consulting.

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 to provide a uniquely effective program of services that maximizes our students’ college admission prospects and that 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, Cinco Ranch, Memorial, Sugar Land, University Place, The Woodlands, Clear Lake, West University, Bellaire, River Oaks, Cypress, Clear Lake City, and other Houston locations.  Families wishing to learn more about our background, services and pricing may contact us at 678-710-3699 or at [email protected].  We also offer our prospective families a free consultation.
