Essay Guidance

Application essays are a critical part of a family’s admissions file. They help provide the admissions committee with a clear sense of how a family’s values align with a school’s mission and convey to a school why a student and family would be a good fit for the school. With our experience having read thousands of admissions files and knowing what makes a parent statement and student application stand out, we help both parents and students write impactful statements that clearly convey their core values and the student’s strengths.
