If you’re a junior or senior in high school, now’s the time to start thinking about applying to college! Khan Academy has created some tools to help you.

Are you a senior looking for help writing your college essay? We’ve asked admissions officers to reveal common mistakes students make when writing their essays, as well as what makes an essay stand out from the rest. This, along with feedback on real student essays, is now available in the admissions essay section.

If you’re a junior trying to decide where you should apply, watch our video on exploring college options. You'll find out the questions you should ask as you embark on your college search process.

Best of luck everyone! Stay tuned for more content to come.
