Vermont College Admissions Consulting

Recent estimates by the National Association for College Admissions Counseling indicate that average student-to-counselor ratios in Vermont high schools are approaching 200-to-1, on average.  Vermont’s school counselors are among the most qualified in their field and play an extremely important role in the academic, social, and emotional development of our children. However, multiple job roles and mounting responsibilities in the areas of mental health support, crisis counseling, and disciplinary intervention have left many Vermont school counselors unable to devote sufficient attention to college planning, college counseling, and college admissions guidance.  The college admissions process at the nation’s most selective colleges and universities has grown more complex and demanding, yet Vermont  students are increasingly unable to obtain the college-related support they need to develop a list of target colleges, organize campus visits, prepare college applications, write college essays, prep for college interviews, secure financial aid and scholarships and engage in several other college admissions-related activities that are key to identifying and transitioning into good-fit institutions. This is why many Vermont area families seek out college admissions consulting.

College Transitions counselors and college admissions consultants aim to supplement the critical work of Vermont’s school counselors and offer responsive, evidence-based college planning and admissions support to Vermont’s students, including those attending Champlain Valley Union High, Essex High, Montpelier High, South Burlington High, Middlebury Union High, The Putney School, Green Mountain Valley School, Vermont Academy and other high schools within Vermont.  Our research experience and publishing credentials, along with our extensive college counseling and admissions background, allow us to offer a unique, data-driven program of college planning services.  Past Vermont students working with College Transitions have earned admission into some of the best colleges and universities across the United States, including many throughout New England, such as Harvard, Middlebury, Dartmouth, Bowdoin, Bates, Colby, Williams, and Amherst and several other competitive institutions.

College Transitions has recently provided college guidance and consulting to families residing in a number of Vermont locations, including Norwich, Shelburne, Williston, Essex, Burlington, Montpelier, Rutland, St. Albans, and others.

“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.”
