College Essay Advisors Launches Video Course to Complement Release of 2015-16 Common Application

For students struggling with the 2015-2016 Common Application personal statement or this year's various school-specific supplements College Essay Academy is an accessible and entertaining solution.

This weekend trumpeted the official release of the 2015-2016 Common Application and its antidote. As the admissions cycle begins anew, College Essay Advisors (CEA) is pleased to announce the official launch of College Essay Academy, a video series that aims to guide high school seniors through the process of crafting compelling and effective college admissions essays.

Every year, the Common Application asks aspiring applicants to write a personal statement, but the art of the personal essay is an oft-overlooked subject in high school English. Filling this hole in the curriculum, College Essay Academy offers students a comprehensive guide to understanding the purpose, process, and mindset required to write stellar admissions essays. The series dishes up advice with a hefty scoop of humor in 10 fully-animated chapters. Stuffed with as many pop culture references and cute animal illustrations as it is with comprehensive guidance, the series covers over three hours of material, including a 20-minute chapter that breaks down all five Common App essay prompts and provides insight into what admissions officers are really looking for.

College Essay Academy is going to be a game changer for students who didn't know where to start the process in the past.

Stacey Brook, CEA Founder and Chief Advisor

“The college essay writing process is notoriously intimidating,” says Stacey Brook, the CEO and Founder of College Essay Advisors and the creator of College Essay Academy. “We wanted to create a video series that spoke to students in their own language.” The series was built to empower students to represent their best selves and tell their authentic stories to admissions with the fun spirit for which CEA has come to be known.

Filling a need in the market for more accessible and affordable essay writing resources, College Essay Academy aims to be the everyman’s resource to demystifying the college essay. It is the high-quality, lower-cost alternative to the one-on-one personal advising services.

“We really believe in the value of this product,” says Brook. “It’s going to be a game changer for students who didn’t know where to start the process in the past.”

With a range of price points available, College Essay Academy’s 101 class guides students through the Common App prompts and core writing method for just $99. The complete Master Class also teaches students how to tackle supplemental application essays, and walks them through a range of real essay examples for $159.
