More and more universities are choosing to maintain their test optional status for the SAT and ACT for Fall 2022 applicants, including the University of Texas at Austin as was announced last week. This trend raises the importance of the admission essay as a place where applicants can share their personal stories and show what kind of college student they will be.

College Application Essay Workshop

You may have missed a college visit over spring break due to COVID-19; your plans to visit campuses this summer may be up in the air. Many, many colleges are currently offering virtual campus tours and visits right now on their websites (search under Admissions or Prospective Students) where you can see the campus through pictures and/or videos and get a feel for the culture of the school. Be sure to register for virtual visits if possible so colleges have a record of your interest. Current juniors, this is a great way to start building a list of schools where you plan to apply; another great goal is to aim to have a first draft of this list in place by the end of May.

College Application Essay Workshop

We pray your family is safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. So many aspects of life have been turned upside down in these past few weeks, including college admissions. We are monitoring the impact closely. We are currently developing an online contingency plan that preserves our cornerstone quality instruction and one-on-one feedback should we not be able to conduct our summer workshops in a face-to-face environment.

College admissions trends we are seeing for current juniors include a decline in the importance of standardized tests as well as grades for the spring 2020 semester. This will place increased importance on grades for Fall of 2020. Using this summer to complete college admission essays will be a vital step for students to set themselves up for college admissions success on the other side of COVID-19. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.

Camps, jobs, vacations, and college admission essays to write before senior year begins in mid-August! It’s so difficult to fit it all in, which is why we are offering two 1-day college admission essay writing workshops for the first time this summer: June 20 & July 25, 5:30-8:00 pm.

We will share the same great writing tips and sample essays in condensed form and provide feedback through final draft on one essay, which is perfect for students with hectic schedules, a smaller number of colleges on their application list, and/or colleges with fewer essay requirements on their application lists. We can also work privately with students after the one-day sessions to complete more essays if that is a need.

Wanted to share this amazing testimonial from a student who participated in our workshop last summer--

"As an incoming senior at The Woodlands High School, I felt as though I would have a lot on my plate with college applications and the busy schedule I already had. I did not mind writing, but doing anything school related before the semester started did not really grab my attention. As I knew I would not be able to sit down and whip up a couple of college essays on my own, I took the College Essay Workshop in the summer of 2017. I am more than sure that I am not the first one to say that this class was more than I could have hoped for. All of my college essays were completed within 4 days! Also, Mrs. Dennis and Mrs. Toups sat down with every student and discussed what they felt could make the essays appear stronger and flow better. I have recommended this class to many of my junior friends because I truly do feel that this class helped me become stress-free when it came to my college applications. If you have the opportunity to take the College Essay Workshop in the summer, do it! --Jacob Grigsby

There are only a few spots left in both sessions!
