COVID-19 Information

April 14, 2020

Currently Governor DeWine of Ohio has closed Ohio schools with a potential open date of Monday, May 4th.  If these guidelines stay in place, Essay Advantage will offer the Summer College Application Essay Course at Ursuline Academy starting during the week of June 1st-5th.  If, however, closings occur in June and throughout the summer, Essay Advantage will offer two choices to students and parents:

  1. Receive a full refund of the course fee  OR
  2. Attend an on-line version of the course

Understandably, some students have virtual learning fatigue.  If you are interested in the course only if it occurs in person, you are welcome to register on the website and not pay.  If the course runs, you can pay closer to the course dates.  In order to set up that arrangement, please send an email to Shauna Whelan at

If you have any other questions or require any other flexibility, please let me know.  This is a hard time for everyone, and I would like to be as helpful as possible to students and their families.

Stay well,
