College Essay Academy with 826 Boston

826 Boston is committed to helping underserved students with one of the daunting aspects of the college application process—the college essay. Summer is a great time to get a head start on the college application process. College Essay Academy offers students an opportunity to dive into the written aspects of the Common Application and work in small groups to brainstorm, draft, and revise their personal statements. This important writing sample is more than an essay: it is the place where students get to tell their story and stand apart from other applicants.
