Recent estimates released by the National Association for College Admission Counseling reveal that student-to-counselor ratios for Tucson area high schools are hovering around 900-to-1, and are as high as 1200-to-1 at some Arizona high schools. Guidance and school counselors have a significant and positive impact on college-bound adolescents, but many are no longer able to offer adequate college admissions guidance and support. Obligated to attend to the personal, psychosocial and emotional needs of their students, Tucson’s guidance counselors are increasingly moving away from their college planning function, even though college applications have become a more time-intensive and complicated process. As a consequence, thousands of Tucson students are without the school-based support needed to complete essential tasks related to the college search, admission, and financial aid process.
A team of college planning experts and admissions consultants, College Transitions can provide Tucson students and families with college-related support they need, primarily by offering assistance with course planning, extracurricular planning and resume development, college search, college application completion, college essay coaching, college interview prep, financial aid and scholarship guidance and other important college admission activities. Over the past several years, we have provided services to students attending high schools across the Tucson area, including those attending University High School, Catalina Foothills High, Salpointe Catholic High School, St. Gregory College Preparatory School, Sabino High, Flowing Wells High and several others. Our extensive background and ties to the college planning and higher education research communities have allowed us to offer a unique and unparalleled college admissions counseling service, which has helped Tucson students secure admission at the best colleges and universities in Arizona and elsewhere, including the University of Arizona, Arizona State University, UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC San Diego, Pamona College, Occidental College, Colorado College, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Michigan, Boston College, Cornell University and others.
