St. Louis College Consulting

St. Louis, Missouri is home to some of the country’s best high schools—including Clayton High, Kirkwood Senior High, Lafayette High, Eureka Senior High, Central High, Thomas Jefferson School, John Burroughs School, Whitfield School, Mary Institute & St. Louis Country Day 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 St. Louis area high schools are approximately 350-to-1, on average, and as high as 600-to-1 at some locations. Given these findings, many St. Louis area students are fortunate to receive even 30 minutes of individualized college guidance from their respective high schools each year. This is why many St. Louis area families seek out college consulting.

College Transitions is a team of expert college admissions consultants and counselors who are committed to ensuring that St. Louis area students and their families have the college guidance they need to engage any and all college admission-related tasks, such as planning a course of study, developing an extracurricular program, creating a target 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, the 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 in the Midwest and throughout the U.S., such as Washington University, Grinnell College, Macalester College, Carleton College, University of Chicago, University of Michigan, Vanderbilt University, Northwestern University, and many others. Please see our results and testimonials page for a sampling of institutions our past students have attended.
