Students all over the country and abroad are asked to write college admissions essays to the colleges of their choice. This task can be daunting for students, but the Jane Schaffer Writing Program guides students to producing an essay that provides sincere information and separates them from other applicants vying for that college acceptance letter.
Some college essay topics ask students to (1) share their backgrounds, interests, or talents; (2) provide lessons they have learned from obstacles encountered in their lives; (3) recount times when they might have been questioned or challenged; (4) reflect on something that other people did that made the students thankful; (5) discuss accomplishments, events, or realizations that sparked a period of personal growth; or perhaps (6) describe captivating and meaningful topics, ideas, or concepts in their lives. JSWP provides high school student workshops to guide students to select appropriate and interesting college essay topics to set the students’ writing apart from other college admissions entries and then leads students through the process to develop their essays.
JSWP also provides teachers with a step-by-step approach to strategies for writing college essays so that their students can successfully enroll in the college of their choice.
