Schedule change: The College Essay Writing Workshop has been moved from this week to next week.

SLVHS, in partnership with the Cougar Club, is offering a College Essay Workshop for Seniors, taught by experienced university writing faculty. The workshop allows students to brainstorm, write, and refine a personal statement essay required for UC (University of California) or write an essay for private college applications. This will also be helpful as students apply for competitive scholarships that require an essay response. Students will have several opportunities to write drafts and work one-on-one with instructors to revise their drafts.

The class will:

  • Review essay prompts
  • Read sample student essays
  • Review essay tips and tricks
  • Draft a college application essay
  • Receive personalized feedback, and use the feedback to review and improve the essay.
  • Please commit to five hours of workshop time, plus some at-home essay writing, spread out between three sessions.

Register in person or by sending an email to Jeannette Lange in the SLV High School Counseling Office (jlange@slvusd.org).

The cost is $40 payable to SLVHS on the first day of the session. Financial support for the workshop is available and students should ask for it in their email registration. Registration deadline is Tuesday, 10/13, by 5PM.


  • All working drafts (if any)
  • Laptop/ Chromebook
  • Creative energy

Note: Substantial snacks will be provided.
