Nashville College Admissions Consulting 

Nashville and the surrounding suburbs are home to many of the top performing high schools in Tennessee and the South.  Students attending Ravenwood High, Brentwood High, Father Ryan, Franklin High, Centennial High, and other excellent high schools benefit from quality teaching, advanced learning technologies, and high-achieving peer groups. However, many of the most accomplished and supported Nashville area students still lack the college admissions counseling and guidance needed to locate and earn admission into competitive and suitable colleges. Recent estimates by the American School Counselors Association reveal that student-to-counselor ratios in Nashville, TN schools are over 300-to-1, and indicate that Nashville area students spend only 30 minutes with college counseling professionals, on average—far less than the amount of time needed to successfully navigate the college admissions and financial aid process. This is why many Nashville area families seek out private college admissions consulting.

College Transitions is devoted to meeting the outstanding college-related needs of Nashville students and their families. Our team of college admission consultants and private college counselors offers a comprehensive program of services encompassing college list development, college application preparation, resume building, college essay writing, extracurricular planning, financial aid, scholarships, and much more.
