Not Just
A College Essay Course

Through our online course, students write their personal statement for their college application. We use games, guided lessons, and feedback to support students. In the course, students are positioned to use their voice and reflect on who they are.


Receive guidance and support as you craft the most important "tip" factor in your application.
