Memphis College Consulting

The area in and around Memphis, Tennessee is consistently recognized as having some of the best high schools in the state and across the country. Each year a high percentage of students graduating from Lewisburg High, Lake Cormorant High, St. Mary’s Episcopal, Hutchison School, Center Hill High, Covington High, Memphis University School, Desoto Central High, and other Memphis area high schools have developed the credentials needed for entry into the nation’s most selective colleges. Yet, many students in Memphis 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 400 students for every counselor in Memphis high schools, on average. As a result, Memphis area students often lack the college guidance and assistance 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 scholarships and partake in other college admissions-related activities. This is why many Memphis area families seek out private college admissions consulting.

At College Transitions, our college counselors and college admissions consultants aim to compensate for the lack of college guidance in Memphis’ high schools, while meeting the college-related needs of Memphis families. For more than a dozen years, the college counselors and college admission planners at College Transitions have helped Memphis area students earn admission and succeed at top colleges and universities throughout the United States, including a number of excellent institutions in Tennessee and the Southeast, such as Rhodes College, Duke University, Vanderbilt University, Tulane University, Emory University, University of North Carolina, Georgia Tech, University of Florida, and University of Virginia, among others. Please visit our results page for a sampling of colleges into which our past clients have been admitted.

Recently, college counselors and admissions consultants at College Transitions have offered college consulting services to families living in Germantown, Lakeland, Olive Branch, Bartlett, Arlington, Collierville and several additional Memphis area locations.
