Philadelphia College Admissions Consulting

The National Association for College Admissions Counseling estimates that the average student-to-counselor ratio in Philadelphia area high schools is approximately 360-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, college application review, college interview prep, financial aid/scholarship guidance, and college choice. This is why many Philadelphia area families seek out college admissions consulting.

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, Blue Bell, Wayne, Ardmore, Radnor, Ambler, Doylestown, Media, Upper Dublin, and many more. We have helped students matriculate into some of the best colleges across the nation, including many in Philadelphia, including Swarthmore, Haverford, Villanova, Bryn Mawr and the University of Pennsylvania. Feel free to review our results page to learn about the other colleges into which our students have matriculated.

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.
