Program for High School Juniors: Creating a Compelling College Application – Tuesday, May 21 @ 7:00 – 8:00. Join us for a special Zoom presentation to help high school juniors and their parents understand how to use the summer productively to create a compelling college application. This program will cover the college application process including current admissions trends, writing the personal statement essay and supplemental essays, teacher recommendations and how students can position themselves to increase their chances for admission. We’ll discuss how the Supreme Court decision has impacted the college admissions process and how a student’s ability to express their insights, experiences and personal growth through their application essays are more important than ever before. We will also discuss the importance of community service, how it can provide an opportunity for personal growth and an opportunity to showcase a student’s character. Admissions officers place great emphasis on a student’s character and how the student has been able to give back and help others.

The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link.
