Richmond VA College Consulting

The Richmond area is home to some of the best high schools in Virginia—including Deep Run High, Godwin High, Atlee High, Cosby High, Freeman High, Richmond Academy, Collegiate School, and St. Catherine’s School, to name a few—and while attendees receive excellent instruction and are surrounded by high-achieving peer groups, they typically cannot secure the individualized guidance and support needed to navigate the college search and application process and ultimately enroll at a good-fit institution. Recent studies show that student-to-counselor ratios at many Virginia high schools exceed 400-to-1, and that students receive only 30 minutes of one-to-one college guidance per year, on average. This is why many Richmond, VA area families seek out college consulting.

At College Transitions, our team of college planning experts and admission consultants aims to supplement the efforts of Richmond’s school-based counselors in order to meet the college-related needs of Richmond students and their families. We provide a full array college counseling services encompassing college list development, course planning, standardized testing strategy, college application review, essay coaching, prep for college interviews, financial aid guidance and numerous other college planning activities. Our counselors have more than 15 years of college planning and consulting experience and have worked with thousands of students possessing a variety of backgrounds, interests, and abilities.  Past College Transitions students have attended the best colleges and universities in the U.S., including several in or near Virginia, including the University of Virginia, College of William & Mary, Virginia Tech, University of Richmond, Washington and Lee, Georgetown University, and others. Please see our results page for a sampling of college acceptances.

Currently, the college planners and consultants at College Transitions serve families residing in Midlothian, Short Pump, Ginter Park, Gran Allen, Moseley, Chesterfield, Henrico, Mechanicsville and other Richmond area locations. We are committed to serving Richmond, VA families for many years to come, and pride ourselves on offering responsive and comprehensive support. The college admissions process has changed in recent years, but that doesn’t mean it has to be more stressful or confusing. Our team can help you find, apply, and transition at the colleges and universities that are right for you. To learn more, please contact us 678-710-3699 or at [email protected].
