College Application- Personal Statement
Thursday, May 20, 2021, 4pm-5:00pm

The college admission essay is an important but often overlooked key to admission. The majority of colleges require an essay as part of the application process, but what do you say? How do you tell your story? In this online session, students will learn key tips and strategies to improve their essays and allow their voices and ideas to be clearly heard.

SAT vs. ACT

Saturday, April 17, 2021, 10 a.m
Choosing between the ACT®, SAT® is like deciding between Snapchat or Instagram Stories. They’re both going to share a story with your friends, but some people may like one more than the other. In this online session, we will break down each test and give students all the details they need to decide whether they should take the ACT or SAT…or both! Click here to learn more. Register here.
