The American School Counselor Association recently found that student-to-counselor ratios in Milwaukee and other Wisconsin high schools are nearing 500-to-1, and are as high as 700-to-1 in some areas. Milwaukee school counselors are among the best trained anywhere and have a demonstrable impact on the academic and personal well-being of their students. However, growing caseloads and increasing responsibilities in the areas of crisis counseling, academic remediation, and student discipline have prevented many of Milwaukee’s school counselors from providing the college guidance and support that students need to successfully complete the college search, admissions, and financial aid process. As college attendance becomes more expensive and complex, Milwaukee and other Wisconsin students often find themselves without the help to plan their academic and extracurricular programs, explore prospective colleges, prepare for college visits and campus interviews, complete college applications, craft college essays, find scholarships, apply for financial aid, and partake in other college admission tasks that are critical to earning entry into competitive colleges and universities.
The private college counselors, college planners, and college admissions consultants at College Transitions strive to augment the efforts of Milwaukee’s competent yet overburdened school staff, namely by offering research- and experience-driven college admissions counseling and advice to Milwaukee-area families, including those residing in Brookfield, Mequon, Muskego, Richfield, Hartland, Bayside, Whitefish Bay, and other Wisconsin locations, Madison and Green Bay. Our academic qualifications and extensive college counseling and admissions background have allowed us to guide Milwaukee and other Wisconsin students into selective colleges throughout the United States. Please see our results page for a sampling of institutions into which our students have been accepted.
Recently, College Transitions counselors have offered college planning and counseling services to students attending Nicolet High, East High, West High (Madison, WI), Homestead High, Central High, Shorewood High, University Lake School, University School of Milwaukee, Dominican High and other Milwaukee area schools.
