College Essay Support

FOR HIGH SCHOOLERS

Telling Your Story for College

College Essay Class for High Schoolers

So much of the college application process depends on the strength of your personal essay. In this one-on-one writing session, we help students connect with and articulate their values, passions, and interests, to think about how they want to use their strengths in service to the world—and how to tell their story in an authentic and inspiring way. Truly, a well-told story can change your life!)

Because of the value and power of storytelling, ALL our classes prepare teens to write exceptional college application essays. Teens who write with us on a weekly basis don't even need help with their essays, because they are so clear in who they are, what they value and how to tell their story. That said, one of the best times to work on college essays in a concerted way is the summer after junior year.
 

As with all our programs, we use the Amherst Writing Method, a methodology rooted in the belief that everyone is a writer, that all feedback be positive, and that our writing voice will continually grow clearer and stronger, the more it is validated and encouraged.

Individual Essay Coaching

Essay-Writing Support for High School Students (Girls + Boys)

So much of the college application process depends on the strength of your personal essay. In this one-on-one writing session, we help students connect with and articulate their values, passions, and interests, to think about how they want to use their strengths in service to the world—and how to tell their story in an authentic and inspiring way. (Fun fact:  every student who's worked with us on their college essay has been accepted into one of their first-choice schools! Truly, a well-told story can change your life!)

“Thank you for all of your help with my son. I have been blown away by everything he has written and can’t thank you enough for the help and inspiration you have given him. When he’s felt “stuck” and struggled—as anyone who has undertaken any creative endeavor will understand happens—he’s always come away from your meetings invigorated and inspired. I can’t thank you enough for that.”
— Father of a coaching student

"Thank you for your incredible work with my son. Your encouragement has meant so much to him and given him a real boost of confidence. Not only was he accepted into his first-choice school, but he also learned a lot about himself in the process.” — Mother of a coaching student
