Essay Editing Services for High School Students

students reviewing college essays

Good writing skills are essential, not only to students’ success in high school, but for their academic futures. Most college applications require a personal statement, many also ask for additional essays or answers to specific prompts. We are here to help.

The College Access mission includes preparing students for college, and since quality writing is an essential part of that process, we have a team of DePaul students who are trained as Peer Editors by the DePaul Writing Center. Our editors assist high school students with their college essays. Each Peer Editor works one-on-one with each student, providing constructive feedback and guidance.

How to use our FREE essay editing service:

  • Plan well ahead of your deadlines - our editors are busy college students and they need sufficient time to edit your essay. Don’t wait till the last minute and expect instant results.
  • Please submit one essay request form per essay.
  • Attach your essay draft as a PDF or Word document and specify the prompt you are answering.
  • You’ll be assigned an editor and feedback will be provided within 2-7 business days.

Our team can also host online workshops on college essay writing. If you are a high school counselor and would like us to present to a group of students, please email Kate Agarwal, kagarwa1@depaul.edu.
