San Jose College Admissions Consulting

San Jose is home to some of California’s best high schools—including Henry Gunn High, Lynbrook High, Los Gatos High, Palo Alto High, Los Altos High, Mountain View High, St. Francis High, The Harker School, Bellarmine College Preparatory, Stanford Online High School, among others—and although enrolled students are provided with excellent instruction, state-of-the art facilities, and high-achieving peer networks, they frequently have trouble procuring the customized college-related support and counseling necessary to earn admission at the nation’s more selective colleges and universities. The American School Counselor Association recently discovered that student-to-counselor ratios in San Jose area high schools are approximately 600-to-1, on average, and as high as 1,200-to-1 at some locations. Given these findings, many San Jose area students are fortunate to receive even 30 minutes of individualized college guidance from their respective high schools each year. This is why many San Jose area families seek out college admissions consulting.

College Transitions is a team of expert college admissions consultants and counselors who are committed to ensuring that San Jose area students and their families have the college guidance they need to engage in any and all college admission-related tasks, such as planning a course of study, developing an extracurricular program, creating a prospective college list, completing college applications, writing college essays, identifying college scholarships, securing financial aid, and much more. With more than 15 years of experience in college admissions and counseling, our independent college counselors at College Transitions have served thousands of students possessing a wide variety of abilities, interests, and backgrounds, and have helped them enroll at the nation’s best colleges and universities, including many along the west coast, such as Pomona College, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Reed College, Harvey Mudd College, Stanford University, Occidental College, University of Washington, Lewis & Clark College, Claremont McKenna College, and many others. Please see our results and testimonials page for a list of institutions our past students have attended.

In recent years, College Transitions consultants have offered college guidance and planning services to students and families residing in Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, Saratoga, Cupertino, Los Altos, Atherton, Mountain View and other San Jose metro area locations.

“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.”
