College Essay Writing Workshop

 

This package is composed of 2 hours with our Essay Specialist, Larina Pierce, in a workshop at The Davidson Center, plus 30 additional minutes of her time (via Google Drive) devoted to reading and commenting on your specific admission and/or scholarship essays.

 

During the workshop, students will read examples of successful college essays, learn what to do and what not to do,m consider what they most want to communicate to prospective colleges, brainstorm appropriate topics, begin writing responses to actual essay prompts, and offer guided feedback to peers.

SAT/ACT Prep: What You Should Know…

SAT-ACTdifference

 

  • All students in North Carolina are required to take the ACT in March of their junior year at their high school (no charge to parents)
  • Approximately 90% of the content IS COMMON TO BOTH TESTS
  • Current research suggests that students who get the best results:
  1. Start preparation early (summer prior to junior year)
  2. Take multiple tests
  3. Are open to taking both the SAT and ACT
  4. Develop a test plan that includes taking three to four SAT’s and/or ACT’s in a short period of time. (We help you develop a Test Plan that suits you! We recommend specific tests and test dates that fit your schedule while considering your other obligations — AP exams, final exams, athletic schedule, other commitments)
