San Diego College Consulting

There is no shortage of top-notch high schools in the San Diego area. Students enrolled at Westview High, Coronado High, Torrey Pines High, Poway High, The Bishop’s School, La Jolla Country Day, Cathedral Catholic and several other San Diego high schools have access to competent teachers, state-of-the-art learning technology, and highly-driven and high-achieving peers. Despite these advantages, however, many of San Diego’s students, even those attending top high schools, are without adequate access to college admissions counseling. The American School Counselor Association reveals that there are nearly 600 students per one school counselor at San Diego’s high schools, on average. Consequently, the majority of San Diego students are not able to rely on their high schools for the intensive and responsive college-related support needed to plan their course of study and extracurricular involvement, identify good-fit colleges and universities, develop a standardized testing strategy, craft college essays, complete college applications, earn financial aid and scholarships, and engage in several other tasks critical to the college admissions process. This is why many San Diego area families seek out college consulting services.

At College Transitions, our team of independent college counselors and college admissions consultants is exclusively devoted to college planning and have the time, credentials, and ability to help San Diego area students earn admission into competitive, good-fit institutions.  As experienced counselors and published higher education researchers, we have leveraged our background and knowledge to guide dozens of San Diego students into reputable colleges across the United States, including the most elite institutions in California, such as UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC San Diego, University of Southern California, Stanford University, Claremont McKenna College, Pomona College, and others. Our results and testimonials page reveals the many other institutions where our students have secured admission.

For more than a decade, College Transitions counselors and admissions consultants have guided San Diego area families through the college admissions process, including those living in La Jolla, Coronado, Del Mar, Carlsbad, Poway, San Marcos, Rancho Santa Fe, Encinitas, and other nearby locations. Let us guide you. To learn more, please reach out by calling 678-710-3699, by emailing us at [email protected], or by completing our online free consultation request form.
