• Juniors,
    Below are the three essays for your college applications as well as some college scholarships. These essays are very important.  Please finish them, No later than Spring Break, so you have time to make corrections.  After you finish them, please give them to your English teacher for corrections and suggestions.  In May these 3 essays need to be perfect so we can attach them to your application.  
    • Essay A: (NEW)
      Tell us your story. What unique opportunities or challenges have you experienced throughout your high school career that have shaped who you are today?
    • Essay B: Some students have an identity, an interest, or a talent that defines them in an essential way. If you are one of these students, then tell us about yourself.
    • Essay C: You’ve got a ticket in your hand – Where will you go? What will you do? What will happen when you get there?


    Each school requires a different combination of these three college essays-some require all three, some just two, or others make certain ones recommended or optional. Some schools even use these essays for both admissions decisions AND scholarships so it’s important to put time and effort into each one!         

    Many of you already have an Apply Texas account started since you are in dual credit.  Feel free to access it and update it anytime. Students can start submitting applications to colleges in July, but you shouldn’t wait until then to start on the college essays. 

    This is the hardest task that you will have in your application process, but once it is finished, everything else will be a breeze.  Get started now because in 4 months, you will be a SENIOR!
