The National Association for College Admissions Counseling recently revealed that student-to-counselor ratios in Las Vegas and other Nevada locations are approaching 500-to1, and are as high as 700-to-1 at some area high schools. Las Vegas and Reno, NV school counselors are well-trained and devoted professionals who have a consistently positive impact on the academic and personal growth of their students. Yet, growing caseloads and mounting responsibilities in the areas of mental health, academic remediation, and student discipline have prevented many of Las Vegas’s school counselors from providing the college guidance and college admissions counseling that students need to successfully navigate the college search, admissions, and financial aid process. As college attendance becomes more expensive and complex, Las Vegas and other Nevada students increasingly find themselves without the support to plan their academic and extracurricular program, 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 securing entry into competitive colleges and universities.
The private college counselors, college planners, and college admissions consultants at College Transitions strive to support the efforts of Nevada’s competent yet overburdened school staff, namely by providing research- and experience-driven college admissions counseling and advice to Nevada families, including those residing in Henderson, Midtown Reno, Northwest Las Vegas, Sparks, Spring Valley, Summerlin and other Clark County locations. Our academic qualifications and extensive college counseling and admissions experience have allowed us to guide Las Vegas 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 Green Valley High, Coronado High, Las Vegas Academy of the Arts, Bishop Gorman, Sage Ridge and other Las Vegas and Reno high schools.
