Writing your College Essay


Please take a few minutes to show your students the following three-minute Loom video about a free opportunity to get support for their college application essays. 

The County Office of Education is offering high school juniors and seniors assistance with the college application essay. One-on-one support from trained writing mentors will be provided online between Oct. 17 and 28. With more colleges skipping the SAT and ACT test requirements due to the pandemic or dropping the requirement altogether, the essay will play a larger part in student admission. Please see the attached letter for more information or go to santacruzcoe.org for information and to register for the workshop. 

This is the sixth year of the College Application Essay Workshop. Please encourage your students to register. Their essays will be better for it and their chances of getting into a college of their choice greatly enhanced!
