  2. How to Write Great College Essays

    July 8, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ Weston Public Library - Virtually

    Many really good kids write really bad college essays; essays about how soccer taught them the importance of teamwork, or how they struggled to adapt to strange cultures during a trip to Paris. It is not their fault; most kids have never been taught what college admissions officers actually want to read about, or that great college essays need to be written very differently from the essays assigned in high school English classes. That is why we created this seminar—to teach kids how to find and write their best stories for college essays. We will explain what admissions officers actually want (and do not want) to read, reveal the five most overused essay topics and teach writing techniques that will help any student write more engaging and effective college essays.
