Kansas City College Admissions Consulting

Recent estimates by the American School Counselor Association indicate that average student-to-counselor ratios in Kansas City high schools are nearing 400-to-1, on average.  Kansas City school counselors are well-qualified and play a very important role in promoting the intellectual, social, and emotional development of their students. However, numerous job roles and growing responsibilities in the areas of testing, crisis counseling, and disciplinary intervention have left many Kansas City school counselors unable to devote adequate attention to college planning and admissions guidance. The college admissions process at the nation’s most competitive colleges and universities has become more complex and demanding, yet Kansas City students are often unable to secure the college-related support necessary to develop a list of target colleges, organize campus visits, complete college applications, craft college essays, prep for college interviews, apply for financial aid and scholarships and engage in several other critical admissions-related activities. This is why many Kansas City area families seek out private college consulting.

College Transitions counselors and college admissions consultants strive to supplement the important work of Kansas City’s school counselors to offer responsive, research-backed college planning and admissions advice to Kansas City students, including those attending Blue Valley High, Park Hill South High, Lee’s Summit West High, Olathe Northwest High, The Pembroke Hill School, Notre Dame de Sion, Rockhurst High and other high schools in and around the Kansas City area. Our academic and research background, along with our extensive college counseling and admissions experience, allow us to offer a unique, data-driven program of college planning services. Past Kansas City students working with College Transitions have earned admission into some of the best colleges and universities across the United States, including many throughout the Midwest, such as Washington University, University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Grinnell College, and several other competitive institutions.

College Transitions has recently provided college guidance and counseling to families living in Overland Park, Leawood, Prairie Village, Lenexa, Shawnee, Olathe, Fairway, Stilwell and other Johnson County and Jackson County locations.

“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.”

"As an only child with parents who never attended college in America, I was completely frightened of the college admissions 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."
