Sign up for help filling out your college applications with college counselor Ellen Parsons.

Learn how to slay your Common Application and make the most of the section students underutilize–the Activities section!

Understand what colleges really want to know and how to present your activities so they reveal who you are and what you care about. Bring your resumes or rough drafts to get the feedback you need and insight you deserve. 

This free college prep workshop is perfect for high school seniors and juniors. Snacks will be provided!

Need help with the University of California Application? Stay tuned for the UC workshop in November.
