Huntington Learning Center Helps College Applicants Stand Out Among the Competition

ORADELL, NJ - (Marketwired - Oct 21, 2013) - In today's world, most jobs require some form of post-secondary education. And while higher education is a necessity to achieve economic success, the reality is that college admissions remain competitive, despite some signs that both college enrollments and high school graduates have hit their peak:

  • According to the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center, college enrollments decreased 2.3 percent in spring 2013 as compared to spring 2012. This is a change from the previous decade marked by growing enrollments.
  • High school graduates also may be on the decline for the first time in many years. According to the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE), the class of 2011 is projected as the largest that the nation has produced, at 3.4 million. "That peak will mark the end of a 17-year run of continuous growth in the number of graduates, during which time graduating cohorts increased by an average of 2.2 percent annually," the WICHE stated in their report, "Knocking at the College Door," published in 2013.

Dr. Raymond Huntington, chairman and founder of Huntington Learning Center, stated that there is a quandary facing American students. "The country needs more skilled, educated workers, yet it is more competitive to get into college than ever before," said Dr. Huntington, referring to the National Association for College Admission Counseling's 2012 "State of College Admission" report, which claims that acceptance rates for four-year institutions declined from 69.6 percent in 2002 to 63.8 percent in 2011. "At a time when policymakers are working to make college more attainable, we don't anticipate that competitiveness changing dramatically in the near future."

Huntington Learning Center helps thousands of students every year do better in school -- and stand out in a highly competitive college admissions landscape. "The reality is that high school graduates who want to go to college today must attempt to stand out from the masses," said Dr. Huntington. "The best way to do this is to achieve the best high school GPA possible, take the most challenging curriculum one can handle, and do one's best on college admissions exams. Those things, after all, are among the top factors that colleges consider."

Huntington offers tutoring services for students from kindergarten through 12th grade as well as college entrance exam preparatory services. Learn more at www.huntingtonhelps.com.
