Vancouver College Admissions Consulting

Recent research suggests that due to resource constraints, secondary schools in Vancouver suffer from high student-to-counselor ratios and are increasingly unable to offer adequate college and university advising, especially for students seeking admission to colleges and universities in the U.S. and other countries outside of Canada. Vancouver’s school counselors are competent, adequately-trained, and support the academic and personal well-being of students; however, due to manifold job roles and growing caseloads, most counselors can no longer devote the time and attention needed to effectively guiding students through the college search, admissions, and financial aid process. As a result, many Vancouver students are left without the help needed to successfully navigate the college admissions process and ultimately enroll at suitable college and universities. These tasks include creating a list of prospective colleges, planning high school coursework and extracurricular participation, applying to internships and summer program opportunities, understanding college application requirements, completing college application forms, writing college essays, and securing financial aid and college scholarships. This is why many Vancouver area families seek out college admissions consulting.

A team of expert college counselors and admissions consultants, College Transitions can provide Vancouver students and families with the 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 secondary schools across the Vancouver area, including those attending University Hill Secondary School, West Point Grey Academy, Columbia River High, Evergreen High, Skyview 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 Vancouver students secure admission at the best colleges and universities in Canada and elsewhere, including the University of British Columbia, University of Toronto, Stanford University, Dartmouth College, Cornell University, Columbia University, University of Michigan, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, UC Berkeley, Bates College, Davidson College, Vanderbilt University and others.

In recent years, College Transitions consultants have offered college guidance and planning services to students and families residing in Shaughnessy, Kerrisdale, Marpole, West Point Grey, Kitsilano and other Vancouver locations. The selective college admissions process may have become more complex and competitive, but it doesn’t have to prove more stressful. Let our team guide you.
