Crafted College Essays Workshop - Get moving on the college essay process!

Developed by a master educator and a bestselling author, with guidance from a former college admissions counselor, the one-day workshop engages students in the process of crafting powerful personal statements directed at college admissions. Students explore narrative techniques and strategies applicable to writing for all elements of admissions, far beyond the Common Application. Scholarship essays, Honors College submissions, inquiry letters and beyond all benefit from our targeted approach. If college essays are stressing your family, join us for a one-day workshop and get a guided start to writing a powerful personal statement. Over the course of the day, the majority of students are able to craft a personal statement while creating a toolbox of writing techniques for the application writing process. It's time to get started, and we are here to help!

Parents are saying...
"Students present their best optimistic selves because you are so calm and friendly. I feel that you gave Elizabeth the confidence to be herself in her writing."

"It's just what he needed! John came back excited and with a plan. We figured we're also saving trips to a family therapist! Thank you!"

Students are saying...

"I move in to college in two and a half weeks which is mostly exciting but a little scary to think about. Thank you so much for all of your help throughout my college application process!! I couldn't have done it without you!"

"I would like to thank you for all you have done for me and my college process. I know I wasn't exactly the easiest person to work with - I mean, who calls at a track meet to work on a college essay! I am happy to say that, with your help, I have submitted essays I am proud of, ones that I feel truly exemplify who I am as a student and what I hope these counselors see. I genuinely enjoyed working with you and hope our paths cross in the future."
