Applying to college is a very stressful task for most students. One of the most important pieces of a college application is the personal essay, and for students who don't have someone to help them navigate this style of writing, it is very difficult for them to know where to start. We believe that if students are able to write a college application essay and receive feedback from peers and teachers their junior year they will be better prepared for the application process. Right now only some teachers in AAPS have made the college essay an assignment, and some who are are not providing their students with important feedback. We want every student to be confident that they will be able to write a strong essay when it comes time to apply to college. We believe that this will ultimately give them more access to college, and a brighter future.
