One of the most difficult essays we could ever ask a student to write is the one about themselves. Help your students navigate this very important document with creativity and confidence. No formulas given here. Each participant will learn how to infuse the best of their personal story, while painting a vision of success, that any college admission professional will enjoy reading.
Getting accepted is only half the battle. Arm your students with key tools and techniques to personalize any scholarship prompt for the winning advantage. They’ll learn our signature “Headline Story” method and engage in on-the-spot coaching exercises to help them craft powerful essays that scholarship panels will remember long after the decision is made.

Our workshops are designed for small or large group facilitation. Students spend 1.5 – 2 hours engaged in activities created to increase their confidence in writing personal narratives. Our workshops help young people:
-Identify their empowering stories
-Understand how to stand out on paper
-Capture their reader’s attention through story telling
Our clinics are custom designed to get your students the maximum impact. Over a course of 2-4 sessions, we work with small groups of students, leading them through activities to make their writing clear, concise, and compelling. This hands-on approach ensures that participants will leave with:
-Stronger writing skills
-A polished piece of writing
-Tools and techniques they can apply in the future
In addition, we provide participants with online feedback and editing of their work between clinic sessions.
We know that applying to colleges and for scholarships is time consuming and very stressful. Pair that with the demands of senior year and the anxiety of getting accepted into a “good” school and a counselor’s job is a nightmare. With a ratio of 1 counselor-to-125 students, in Philadelphia, we had to help.
That’s why we hold Scholarship Clubs in Philly’s schools. These weekly meetings take committed students through a series of college coaching, essay writing and scholarship matching & submission support. Our goal is to run a Scholarship Club in every Philadelphia public high school.
Capture Greatness workshops help develop student confidence and ability to write about themselves strategically for college admission and scholarship essays. They give students the tools and work with them to follow through on their essay applications.
Students were able to dig deeper because of the passion and commitment that Melissa demonstrates. She challenges students to share those stories that are compelling and engaging for the scholarship reviewers.
The workshops offered by Capture Greatness has allowed us the opportunity to offer educational enrichment that will aid in the professional development of our students. In addition to the traditional mentoring sessions offered by the ACE program, we were able to expose our students to essential soft skills that are necessary for educational and professional success.
Capture Greatness has truly exceeded all of my expectations. It has provided opportunities for students who, at times, see no way of reaching their goals and dreams.
