Tempe College Admissions Consulting

The findings of a National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC) survey yielded the unfortunate statistic that Arizona has one of the highest student-to-guidance counselor ratios in the entire country at 848:1. Nationally, the average is 351:1, meaning that students in Arizona have far less access to college counseling than your average high school student in the United States. Consequently, the majority of Arizona residents, including high school students in Tempe, do not have the school-based guidance required to effectively engage the college search, college application, and college financial aid process. This is why many Tempe area families seek out college admissions consulting.

With more than a decade of college-related and admissions-related experience, College Transitions college counselors and college admissions consultants offer Tempe 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.

In the past several years, we have provided college guidance to students attending some of the best Tempe area high schools, including Tempe Preparatory Academy, Desert Vista High School, McClintock High School, Tempe High, Mountain View, and Fountain Hills High School. Our college admissions expertise 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 Arizona and throughout the United States, including Arizona State, the University of Arizona, Claremont McKenna, Duke, the University of Chicago, MIT, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Emory, and every Ivy League institution.

Currently, College Transitions is providing services to students and families residing in Tempe, Glendale, Peoria, Paradise Valley, Phoenix, Gilbert, among other locations.  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.”

However, College Transitions immediately settled my fears and supported me through every aspect of that process...-I just got back from Bulldog Days at Yale, and I still cannot believe that I was accepted. Thanks to your help, I got to see my dream come true."
