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.

At College Transitions, our team of private college counselors, college planners, and college admissions consultants are exclusively devoted to college guidance and possess the time, credentials, and skills to help Washington DC area students locate and earn admission into competitive postsecondary institutions.  As seasoned counselors and published higher education researchers, we have leveraged our knowledge and experience to guide dozens of DC area students into competitive colleges in Washington, Maryland, Virginia, and elsewhere, including Georgetown University, George Washington University, American University, University of Virginia, College of William & Mary, Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland and many more.  Our results and testimonials page offers a glimpse of where some of our students have secured admission.

For more than a decade, College Transitions counselors and admissions consultants have guided DC area families through the college admissions process, including families residing in Bethesda, MD, Chevy Chase, MD, Mclean, VA, Georgetown, DC, Potomac, MD, Arlington, VA, and Fairfax, VA, among other Washington DC locations.

“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.”

"As an only child with parents who never attended college in America, I was completely frightened of the college admissions 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."
