Orlando College Admissions Consulting

New findings published by the National Association for College Admissions Counselors reveals that student-to-counselor ratios in Orlando high schools are exceedingly high, approaching 450-to-1 at many high schools throughout the state.  Florida school-based counselors are competent, well-trained, and improve the academic and emotional well-being of the state’s students; however, given multiple job roles and growing caseloads, most counselors can no longer devote the time and effort necessary to college planning and to effectively guiding students through the college search, admissions, and financial aid process.  As a consequence, many Orlando, Florida students go through high school without the support needed to successfully navigate the college admissions process and to engage in the tasks necessary to enroll at suitable college and universities. These tasks include, but are not limited to, creating a list of target colleges, planning high school coursework and extracurricular activities, securing internships and summer program opportunities, navigating college application requirements, filling out college application forms, writing college essays, and obtaining financial aid and college scholarships. This is why many Orlando area families seek out college admissions consulting.

College Transitions strives to address the current college admission-related needs of Orlando’s students, primarily by offering comprehensive college planning and college admissions counseling services to Florida families residing throughout the Orlando area, including locations such as Windermere, Winter Park, Maitland, Oviedo, Altamonte Springs, Winter Garden, Lake Mary, Heathrow, North Hill, Lake Buena Vista, and Celebration. As higher education researchers and college admission professionals, we develop evidence-backed college admissions strategies that help our students earn admission into competitive colleges throughout Florida and elsewhere in the United States. Our results attest to the effectiveness of our guidance and strategies.

Over the past several years, College Transitions has guided students at a number of Orlando area high schools, including Downey Christian, Freedom High, Oviedo High, Timber Creek, Trinity Prep, Windermere Prep, and Winter Park High, among others.  If you would like to find out more about our offerings, you may reach us via phone at 678-710-3699, via email at [email protected], or by submitting a request for a free consultation.

“College Transitions was responsive, establishing a great rapport with our son, and keeping the process moving in a friendly and helpful way...fine tuning the essays, error checking he applications, and available to answer panicked questions almost around the clock. Sam was accepted into his first choice, The University of Chicago, a school that had seemed out of reach at the beginning of the process.”

Thanks to your help, I got to see my dream come true."
