About the workshop College Essay Workshop

The college application process is competitive, stressful, and time-consuming. One of the crucial pieces of a strong college application is the essay. Know what admissions offices are looking for and present the best version of yourself in your essay and it can mean the difference between getting into your top choice university or not. 

In this two-part workshop, students will learn writing strategies and techniques that are specific to the college admissions essay, as well as general information about the college search, scholarships, and the importance of the essay during the review process.

Workshop participants will receive one-on-one attention as well as a booklet of the course material, handouts, and resources. 

*This workshop is open to teens in grades 9-12.

*To ensure individual attention for each participant, this workshop has a limited number of spots.

*Limited scholarships are available. Please contact Sonya Weisburd at sonyaw@washingtondcjcc.org
