Essay Workshop for the College Application

Given the rising costs of higher education, the record numbers of college applicants, and the decrease in scholarships being awarded, 2020 graduates need to differentiate themselves in the college application process.  Test Preps has the answer!

Register for our Essay Workshop for the College Application.  The essay is the single best way for high school seniors to reveal themselves as individuals to prospective colleges.

Upon completion of our course, students will have written a polished essay that highlights their passions, character, and convictions, and demonstrates how they will positively contribute to a college community.

Seniors – During our Essay Workshop we will:

  • Brainstorm about you – your experiences, your passions, your dreams!
  • Discuss the major essay prompts (Common Application, SUNY and Private Colleges)
  • Review the Do’s and Don’ts of writing application essays
  • Examine sample essays to learn about what has worked for others
  • Revise to perfect content and edit to correct grammar/punctuation
  • Conference with Test Preps instructors for feedback and direction

Don’t wait to write your college application essay when your calendar fills up with school and extra-curricular activities!

Cost:  $325  (3 sessions)


Students will need to complete approximately 45 minutes of writing several nights and bring their drafts with them to the next class for revision and editing.
