College Application Workshop

Want to know how to stand out in a college application? How has COVID-19 changed the application landscape?

In this online workshop, we will address the following questions:

  • What are top schools looking for?

  • How can I craft an effective college essay that will stand out?

  • What can parents do to support their child in this critical and stressful process?

  • Why is it getting harder to get into a top school?

  • What changes do I need to know as a result of COVID19?

The last year has seen huge changes to the application process, and the cancelation of the SAT II and SAT Writing and Language section means that essays, extracurriculars, and how applicants present themselves are even more important than before.

 

Every student has their own hobbies, interests, and strengths. Through this workshop, we hope to encourage students to think holistically about themselves when applying for colleges and writing college application essays. This requires a willingness to examine oneself and understand the motivations we have for our actions.

We do this by focusing on self-understanding and self-appreciation while dealing with some of the questions that students and parents often ask us about the application process.

Dr. Wu is excited to share her expertise, as well as tips to make your application stand out from the rest. We will also hear from 5 successful college applicants about what worked for them to get into the schools of their dreams!

Join us to gain more insight into the application process and learn practical steps you and your student can take to better prepare for this journey together.

"With your help, I was able to craft essays that effectively presented my true character to colleges. Thanks to your essay revision and brainstorming process, I was able to submit essays that I could be proud of!"     - J.G.

Education Workshops

Throughout a child's life they continually look to their parents for education, guidance, and support. These days, it seems parents have to take on roles that are larger than life. We understand what a daunting task it is to help your student through each phase of their life, especially when they embark on the path towards college. 

At Veritas Education, our services go beyond the student, as we know behind each student is a parent guiding them. Our services range from academic assistance to bridging the gap between cross-cultural and cross-generational communication. Join us at our workshops!

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused massive changes in our education systems. Now, parents and guardians may feel anxious about the upcoming school year, seeing their children facing virtual learning and reduced school hours. With their kids currently stuck at home all day, how can parents best encourage them to continue reading, writing, learning, and developing these skills more effectively?

Dr. Susan B. Neuman is a Professor of Teaching and Learning at New York University specializing in childhood education and early literacy development. Previously, she served as the U.S. Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education. In her role as Assistant Secretary, she established the Early Reading First program, the Early Childhood Educator Professional Development Program.

Lessons for Parents and Students 

Meet our speaker Tony Lodge who will be presenting at our Role Models: Caring for Our Community Panel coming up on August 13th at 7pm EST! He is a driven foster-care advocate, working with multiple D.C. agencies and interning on Capitol Hill, and student at Georgetown University. He will walk you through how he created his advocacy projects, the important lessons he learned in life, and advice for young people who want to make a change. Hope to see you all there!

“What’s the point of going to Harvard if you don’t have a dream? [I think] the number one thing is putting yourself in situations where even you say: ‘Man, this stinks.’ Because once you say it stinks, that means you have an obligation to do something about it.”

-Tony Lodge
