Recent estimates revealed by the American School Counselor Association indicate that average student-to-counselor ratios in New Orleans high schools are nearing 300-to-1, on average. New Orleans school counselors are well-qualified and play a very important role in promoting the intellectual, social, and emotional development of their students. However, numerous job roles and increasing responsibilities in the areas of testing, crisis counseling, and disciplinary intervention have left many New Orleans school counselors unable to devote adequate attention to college planning and admissions guidance. The college admissions process at the nation’s most competitive colleges and universities has grown more complex and demanding, yet New Orleans students are often unable to secure the college-related support necessary to develop a list of target colleges, organize campus visits, complete college applications, craft college essays, prep for college interviews, apply for financial aid and scholarships and engage in several other critical admissions-related activities.
College Transitions counselors and college admissions consultants strive to supplement the important work of New Orleans’ school counselors and offer responsive, research-backed college planning and admissions advice to New Orleans students, including those attending Benjamin Franklin High, Warren Easton Senior High, Lusher Charter School, Belle Chasse High, West St. John High, Isidore Newman School, Mount Caramel Academy, Metairie Park Country Day School, McGehee School and other high schools in and around the New Orleans metro area. Our academic and publishing credentials, along with our extensive college counseling and admissions experience, allow us to offer a unique and unparalleled program of college planning services. Past New Orleans students working with College Transitions have earned admission into some of the best colleges and universities across the United States, including many throughout the South and Midwest, such as Tulane University, University of Georgia, Vanderbilt University, Rhodes College, Washington University, University of Chicago, Northwestern University, Beloit College, and numerous other competitive institutions.
