Join Pacific Learning Academy instructors and Executive Director Kirsten O’Malley and K.C. Thompson, UCLA certified Independent College Consultant, to complete a rough draft of the Common Application before fall deadlines. During this 5-day series, rising seniors will work on the activities list, personal essay, and supplemental essays, both 1-to-1 and in small groups.

Participating students should expect to have one to two additional hours of individual work each night and to arrive to the workshop with a completed college list and a Common App account. Workshop sessions will be held virtually via Zoom, with small group instruction and one-on-one support.

Register before June 15 to enjoy a 15% early bird registration discount for the Virtual Summer Common App Workshop and a 30% discount on your (optional) first two hours of 1-on-1 essay help from August to December 15.

Prices for the Workshop will increase from $975 to $1150 on June 16, so register now to secure your student’s place and avoid late-pay penalties.

Additional Options:

  • Contact K.C. Thompson for assistance with creating a customized college list for $750 ($850 value), including access to CounselMore College Planning Software for one year.
  • Pre-purchase two additional hours of 1-to-1 essay coaching services for $125 (a $162 value). Use these hours anytime before December 16 (subject to availability) to complete drafts and focus in on Supplemental Essays (topics are published in August).
