The Jacksonville, FL area is consistently recognized as having some of the best high schools in the United States. A high percentage of students graduating from Stanton College Preparatory, Fleming Island High, Allen D. Nease Senior High, Bartram Trail High, Ponte Vedra High, The Bolles School, Episcopal High, St. John’s Country Day and other Jacksonville high schools have developed the credentials needed for entry into the nation’s most selective colleges. Yet, many of Jacksonville’s students don’t have the guidance and support needed to effectively navigate the college search and admissions process. Current American School Counselor Association (ASCA) estimates show that there are nearly 500 students for every counselor in Jacksonville’s high schools, on average. As a result, Jacksonville area students often lack the college guidance and help to develop a list of prospective colleges, prepare college applications, craft college essays, plan their extracurricular involvement, complete financial aid forms, secure financial aid and private scholarships and partake in other college admissions-related activities.
At College Transitions, our college counselors and college admissions consultants aim to compensate for the lack of college guidance in Jacksonville’s high schools, while meeting the college-related needs of Jacksonville families. For more than a dozen years, the college counselors and college admission planners at College Transitions have helped Jacksonville area students earn admission and succeed at top colleges and universities throughout the United States, including a number of excellent institutions in Florida and the Southeast, such as Emory University, Duke University, Vanderbilt University, Davidson College, New College of Florida, University of Miami, University of Florida, and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, among others.
