College Essay Preparation

Preparing college essays is challenging and stressful. We take the worry out of the process by helping students convey their strengths and enhance their application.  

We work with your student every step of the way, from conceiving a great idea to editing the final product! The essay helps the college get to know the student.


The essay is an opportunity to: 

  • Talk about a personal experience that made a great impact.
  • Demonstrate a command of the language.
  • Showcase your student's voice.
  • Convey a sense of humor.
  • Share a passion for a cause or an ideal.
  • Make an important point that wasn't asked in the application.


The essay can be serious, playful, or even outrageous.

This is your student's opportunity to show his or her individuality.
