College Essay Writing

Do you need more help and ideas geared towards crafting the perfect college essay?


We understand the daunting idea that college deadlines are just around the corner. Creating a college essay that is unique, deep, and thorough takes time and effort. With guidance from our senior advisory team, students have crafted authentic college essays that reflect their unique characteristics. Join us today and see the transformation in your essays yourself!

College Essay Intensive

During this intensive class we will help to resolve some of these key challenges:

  • How do I choose the right topic, story or examples for my college essay?

  • I have too many activities, how do I narrow down the best choice?

  • How do I add depth and real life examples into my college essay?

  • I have not been involved in very many activities, how can I still stand out?

  • How can I discuss my struggles and limitations without sounding weak?

At Veritas we want to see our students not only succeed, but grow during the process. Through this class we believe students will get a better grasp on what is needed to craft an effective college essay, how to integrate your own activities and life experience, and most importantly, how to create an essay that truly stands out. Our goal through these sessions are to help rising 12th graders craft as many high quality college essays as possible so that they will apply with confidence.

Student Feedback

At the beginning of the course, I had my doubts on how I can write a meaningful common app essay in just 8-10 hours. However, there is a reason the word “intensive” is embedded into the class name because it really was a very genuine and engaging process. The instructors care about the students on a deeper level so much so that at times, I felt like they were my close friend. Even though the class is just two hours a day, there are so many ideas and advice exchanged and it was overall a powerfully informative session. I left the class feeling as if I not only had a solid understanding of what to write, but also grasped new things about myself that I would have never been able to discover otherwise.                                                                                                       - Jennifer Wu, Rising 12th Grader 


I just wanted to thank you for helping me with my common app essay. Before the Bootcamp, I was going in totally irrelevant directions. Now, all of my college counselors at school say that they really like my essay and I like it myself, too. I can't imagine where I would be without your help.  - Teresa Li, 12th Grader
