Tampa Bay College Consulting

The Tampa Bay area includes some of the best high schools in Florida. Students attending Plant High, Palm Harbor University High, Strawberry Crest High, Bloomingdale High, Wiregrass Ranch High, Berkeley Preparatory, Tampa Preparatory, Academy at the Lakes, and several other high schools have access to excellent instruction, state-of-the-art learning technology, and networks of academically motivated and competitive peers. Yet, many of these same students don’t always have access to adequate college-related guidance, specifically the intensive support needed to earn entry into good-fit colleges.  Recent estimates by the National Association for College Admission Counseling reveal that student-to-counselor ratios at Tampa Bay area high schools are approaching 450-to-1, meaning that Tampa Bay students receive, on average, only 30 minutes of individual college guidance from their high schools each year, which, unfortunately, is not sufficient to successfully navigate the college admissions process. This is why many Tampa Bay area families seek out college consulting.

The college admission counselors and consultants at College Transitions endeavor to address the outstanding college admission-related needs of Tampa Bay area families, particularly by offering an array of admission consulting services, including, but not limited to, college list development, college application review, college essay coaching, resume development, college interview preparation, standardized testing strategies, extracurricular and course planning, and financial aid and scholarship guidance.  Our private college planners and admission consultants have nearly 15 years of college admissions and counseling experience and have used their research background and professional experience and ties to guide students into competitive colleges throughout the United States, including many in Florida and the Southeast, including University of Florida, University of Miami, Duke University, Georgia Tech Emory University, Vanderbilt University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and others.

College Transitions counselors and college admission consultants have guided families living across the Tampa Bay area, including Bradenton, Wesley Chapel, Odessa, Cheval, Trinity, Land O’Lakes, Tarpon Springs, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, Palm Harbor, Lutz, and additional locations.
