It’s not even June, and believe it or not, I’m already working with parents who are preparing their admissions essays for private school kindergarten.  Here are a few tips for you:

1)  Describe your child in a forthright way that is neither overly modest nor immodest.

2)  Try to be colorful and unique.  Admissions directors are reading hundreds of essays, and trust me, they blend into each other and become dull fast.  You want yours to stand out, in a good way.

3)  Your essay should sound like it is specific to a school, not like you copied and pasted it twelve times.
