Washington DC College Admissions Consulting

There is no shortage of top-notch high schools in and around the Washington, DC area.  Students enrolled at Winston Churchill, Walt Whitman, Langley, Poolesville, James Madison, McLean, Bethesda Chevy Chase, Loudon Valley, Fairfax, Potomac, Sidwell Friends, Georgetown Day and several other area high schools have access to well-trained teachers, cutting edge technology, and high-achieving and highly-driven peers.  Despite these advantages, however, many DC area students, even those attending the best high schools, are without sufficient access to college admissions counseling and guidance.  The National Association for College Admission Counseling estimates that in the DC area, there are nearly 400 students per school counselor, on average. Consequently, Washington DC students are not able to rely on their high schools for the individualized and responsive college admissions guidance needed to develop academic and extracurricular strategies, identify good-fit colleges and universities, create a standardized testing strategy, craft college essays, complete college applications, procure financial aid and scholarships, and engage in a number of other tasks essential to the college admissions process. This is why many Washington DC area families seek out college admissions consulting.
