The National Association for College Admissions Counseling recently reported that student-to-counselor ratios in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina area are approaching 400-to-1, and are as high as 600-to-1 at some Research Triangle area high schools. North Carolina school counselors are well-trained and committed professionals who have a demonstrably positive impact on the academic and personal growth of Raleigh-Durham’s students. Yet, increasing caseloads and new responsibilities in the areas of mental health, academic remediation, and student discipline have prevented many of Raleigh-Durham’s school counselors from providing the college guidance and counseling that Research Triangle area students need to successfully navigate the college search, admissions, and financial aid process. As college attendance becomes more costly and complex, Raleigh-Durham 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 Raleigh-Durham’s competent yet overburdened school staff, namely by providing research- and experience-driven college admissions counseling and advice to Raleigh-Durham families, including those residing in Cary, Apex, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, Morrisville and other Wake County locations. Our academic qualifications and extensive college counseling and admissions experience have allowed us to guide Raleigh-Durham students into selective colleges throughout North Carolina and the United States, including UNC Chapel Hill, Duke, NC State, Davidson, Wake Forest, Elon and a number of other excellent institutions.
Recently, College Transitions counselors have offered college planning and counseling services to students attending Green Hope High, Panther Creek High, Cary High, Apex High, William G. Enloe High, Carrboro High, Chapel Hill High, Cardinal Gibbons, East Chapel Hill High, Raleigh Charter High and other high schools in Raleigh, Durham and other Research Triangle areas.
