Download a Complimentary Webinar Series
Command Education is offering a complimentary two-part webinar series, led by our Senior Mentors, all of whom are graduates of Ivy League and other top-tier universities.
Command Education is launching a Webinar Series for students who are home from school due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We have heard from countless worried parents who are unsure of how their kids will cope with the unexpected changes. Parents worry that their kids may end up wasting this unprecedented time off, and falling behind on school work and their extracurriculars. Furthermore, some SATs have been cancelled and competitions and conferences postponed, delaying timelines for millions of students.
The impact on children’s education and their future college success is a consequence of this pandemic that many parents are unsure of how to deal with. We want to help 9th and 10th grade students take advantage of this time while they are home to help them discover their passions and create a roadmap for their high school career. For 11th grade students who should be meeting with their guidance counselors about their college list, sorting out their early action/ early decision strategy, and understanding the college essay, we’ve developed a comprehensive curriculum to walk students through all aspects of the college admissions process.

Webinar for 9th – 10th Graders
9th/10th Grade: Session 1
- Discovering your Passions
In part one of this two-part series, a Command Education Senior Mentor motivates students to take advantage of their time away from school and give them the means they need to do so. This webinar introduces students to the basics of emotional intelligence in a way that is relevant to their current anxieties about COVID-19. Then, the students will learn about how finding their “hook” can help them get into college. Students will receive tools and guidance so that they can learn how to stand out in college admissions. This webinar encourages students to focus on developing soft skills and planning for the future, rather than worrying about the present.
9th/10th Grade: Session 2
- Creating your Roadmap
Part Two of Command Education’s webinar for Freshmen and Sophomores expands the previous lesson, introducing the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence’s “mood meter.” Students will learn how to plot their emotions on the mood meter so that they feel more comfortable and confident about expressing their feelings during this stressful time. Afterward, a Command Education Senior Mentor will guide students through the process of creating a passion project that relates to their hook. They will also provide an example of a year-long roadmap so that students can gain a better understanding of how their passion project will fit in with their current schedule.

- Making your College List
At Command Education, we believe there is a right college match for everyone, and we are committed to helping students find theirs. In this webinar, a Senior Mentor from Command Education will review the different college options that rising seniors have. Given this information, they will provide students with the tools and guidance they need to craft a balanced college list. Most importantly, students will be challenged to connect with their “why” determine why they want to attend their dream college.
11th Grade: Session 2
- Understanding the College Essay
The college application process takes months to complete for most students. Still, many of those hard working students don’t get accepted into their dream schools. By placing emphasis on writing a unique and authentic college essay, Command Education helps 94% of its students get into one of their top 3 choice schools. In this webinar, a Command Education Senior Mentor will share their insights into the college essay writing process and urge students to begin thinking about their college essay now, when they have the time, rather than waiting for school to resume in the fall.
