The National Association for College Admissions Counseling estimates that the average student-to-counselor ratio in Philadelphia area high schools is approximately 380-to-1. Guidance counselors serve an extremely important function within our school systems, and are integral to the personal and academic development of our students; however, multiple job roles and time constraints have left them unable to adequately assist in the most critical areas of college planning, including college list development, college essay coaching, financial aid/scholarship guidance, and college choice.
At College Transitions, we strive to supplement the valuable work of school counselors and provide Philadelphia area students with the comprehensive guidance and knowledge needed to earn admission and transition into good-fit colleges. We have assisted scores of students from neighborhoods across the Philadelphia region, including Newtown, Wayne, Ardmore, Radnor, Ambler, Doylestown, Media, Upper Dublin, and many more. Feel free to see some of our results from current and former students. We have also helped students matriculate into some of the best Philadelphia area colleges, including Swarthmore, Haverford, Villanova, Bryn Mawr and the University of Pennsylvania. Over the past several years, College Transitions has become an integral member of the Philadelphia education community, and we hope to facilitate the college planning of Philadelphia area residents for many years to come.
