High School Admissions Essay Writing

Last Date:

The admissions essay is very different than the standard school essay or research paper, and many 8th grade students struggle with writing and speaking reflectively about themselves. In this workshop, led by staff from Higher Achievement DC Metro, we will discuss with school staff the three main components of a successful admissions essay and how to communicate the “fit” that a student has with a particular school. Participants will leave with example essays as well as essay writing templates, including examples for peer review.
