College Application/Essay Workshops + SAT/ACT Prep Workshops


We created Brattle Street Intensives specifically for students and families looking for immersive programs led by our expert coaches and mentors.

If you are serious about creating the best profile for submission to the school of your dreams in the United States and around the world, one of our Intensives may be right for you.

We assist students in essay writing, standardized and AP test prep, interview techniques and even strategies to get their work published… and we are always launching new programs meant to get ambitious students ahead.

Common App Essay Support

Prior to the start of the program, we will send you materials to help you brainstorm ideas for your Personal Statement essay. During the Intensive, you will work with an expert writing coach, in a small group and one-on-one environments and receive feedback from our team of college essay editors. We will focus our sessions on Great Storytelling using written and video examples to inspire and demonstrate. Students will leave our four-day program with a final draft that tells colleges who they are and what they have to offer. Students wanting to polish their essays beyond the Intensive will continue to work with our coaches via email and telephone/Skype right until the push “send” on theiur applications. We will not be satisfied until you are.

Supplemental Essay Support

While each college has its own version of its Supplemental Essays, students will develop ideas, outlines and drafts that can be tailored for specific schools. Bringing with you a list of colleges you intend to pursue will be helpful in determining your focus during the intensive program. We are happy to create a custom plan to continue working with you on your supplemental essays after the Intensive is complete.

Common App Activities

It’s not a matter of just what you put into the limited space offered in the Common App Activities section, but how you present the information. We will work with you to offer the most comprehensive, eye-catching presentation of your extracurriculars, sports, jobs, community service, etc. And we will help you use all of the sections of the application to make you stand out.

Resume Prep

Resumes can play an important role in the college application process. Some colleges allow students to submit them with their applications, which allows additional space to expound upon and add to the activities that are included in the Common App. The resume draft the student will create during the Intensive will also be helpful for college and job/internship interviews.

Interview Training

Students will learn how to best present themselves and their accomplishments during interviews, focusing on questions and discussion points they can expect in meetings. Training will prepare students not only for college interviews, but for internship and job interviews, too. Our Coach will teach effective interviewing strategies, conduct mock interviews and give feedback.

College Counselor Training

We know that even the most experienced school guidance counselors don’t have the time they would like to devote to each of their students. Our college counselors will meet one-on-one with our students to discuss all of their concerns, to review their applications and to help refine their college lists.
