Los Angeles College Admissions Consulting

The Greater Los Angeles area is consistently cited for having some of the best high schools in the country.  Mountain View, Arcadia, Irvine, La Canada, Westlake, Harvard Westlake, Brentwood, Marlborough and Loyola are just a few of the high schools producing large numbers of college-ready graduates. While there is no shortage of great high schools in Los Angeles and the surrounding suburbs, there is a shortage of school counselors—in LA and throughout California.  Recent research reveals that California has the highest student-to-counselor ratios in the country, averaging approximately 600-to-1. As such, Los Angeles area students rarely receive adequate college admissions counseling and guidance from their respective high schools. This is why many Los Angeles area families seek out private college admissions consulting.

College Transitions counselors and college admissions consultants aim to address the college- and admissions-related needs of Los Angeles area students and their families, through offering support on all college admissions tasks, including course planning, resume development, college search and list development, summer program search, college application completion, writing college essays, securing merit-based and need-based financial aid, and others.  With nearly 20 years of college admissions and counseling experience, counselors and admissions consultants at College Transitions have helped scores of Los Angeles area students secure admission at top colleges and universities across the U.S., including many in California, such as UCLA, USC, Occidental, Pomona, Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Scripps, UC San Diego, UC Berkeley, Stanford and many more. Interested readers are encouraged to see our results and testimonials page.

In recent years, College Transitions counselors have guided students and families living in Thousand Oaks, Arcadia, Palos Verdes Estates, Laguna Niguel, Newport Beach, Beverly Hills, Manhattan Beach, Santa Monica, Glendale, Sherman Oaks and other Los Angeles locations. We are fortunate to serve the greater Los Angeles area, and hope to be guiding its residents through the college search and admissions process for years to come.   For more information on our company and services, please contact us 678-710-3699 or at [email protected].
