Jumpstart College Apps

Jumpstart is a four-day workshop during which instructors assist students with the college application process and their essay writing. Instructors provide one-on-one support as they guide students through the Common Application, Coalition Application, and essays. Students leave Jumpstart with a clear to-do list and helpful resources and tips for resume building, supplemental questions, and additional essays.

"Jumpstart is a great resource for any student, whether you already have a plan for your college applications or are just getting started. Mrs. Ward and her team helped me find direction in my essays, build my resume, and come up with a good list of schools." -Sam, The University of Pennsylvania

"Jumpstart is a great opportunity to get one-on-one help with the college application process. Not only did I get all my questions answered, but I received guidance as I brainstormed creative essay topics that captured me as an applicant." -Scott, Penn State University

"I applied to eight schools, and all of them had multiple essays. I did not know where to start! Jumpstart eased my stress and helped me organize and plan essays I was proud to submit. With Jumpstart, applying to college was manageable and successful. The hardest part was choosing which school to attend!" - Lauren, The University of Pittsburgh

"Before Jumpstart, I was lost in the college application process. After the workshop, I knew exactly what I wanted in a school and what to do to apply. And, I had my perfect essay!" -Josh, Temple University

"Through Jumpstart I was able to submit all of my applications early, and I was not stressed during my senior year. Also, the self-reflection activities and instructors are incredibly helpful through the whole essay writing process, especially when you don't know where to start!" -Andrew, The George Washington University

"Jumpstart helped motivate and guide me through the college application and essay writing process. I don't know what I would have done without the direction the instructors provided." -Sam, Elmira College
