Rockville College Admissions Consulting

High Schools in the state of Maryland offer a student-to-guidance counselor ratio of 356:1. This fails to reach the ratio recommended by The National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) of 250:1. As a result,  the majority of Maryland residents, including high school students in Rockville, do not have the level of school-based guidance required to effectively engage the college search, college application, and college financial aid process. This is why many Rockville area families seek out college admissions consulting.

College Transitions’ admissions consultants have over a decade of experience and are able to provide Rockville area students the college counseling they need, specifically by providing support related to high school course planning, extracurricular planning, developing a college resume, building a list of suitable prospective colleges, writing college essays, preparing for college interviews, and applying for financial aid and scholarships. We have provided college guidance to students attending some of the best Rockville area high schools, including Thomas S. Wootten High, Rockville High, Richard Montgomery High, Bethesda Chevy Chase High, Colonel Zaduk Magruder High, Walt Whitman High School, Holton Arms, the Landon School, and Georgetown Prep. Our expertise in the admissions realm and connections to higher education faculty, administrators and researchers have enabled us provide a uniquely effective program of services that maximizes our students’ college admission prospects and has helped them earn admission at the best colleges and universities in Maryland, such as the University of Maryland, Johns Hopkins, Goucher, and St. Mary’s, as well as schools throughout the United States, including Georgetown, MIT, Pomona, the University of Chicago, Bowdoin, Swarthmore, Stanford, and every Ivy League institution.

Presently, College Transitions is providing services to students and families residing in Rockville, Bethesda, Potomac, Silver Spring, Germantown, and White Oak.  Families wishing to learn more about our background, services and pricing may contact us at 678-710-3699 or at [email protected].  We also offer our prospective families 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.”
