Story2 puts students in charge of the admissions process, through their proprietary Moments Method® curriculum. Story2 guides students through the steps, so that they’re able to write a powerful admissions essay, in their own voice. It also connects students with a network of trained admissions experts, who will also help them through the process.
“We applied to the Kaplan EdTech Accelerator to build a platform to disrupt and democratize US college admissions and teach students storytelling and writing competencies that are essential for work and learning, ” said CEO Carol Barash, who is a life-long educator. “Kaplan’s expertise across all types of education enabled us to build our platform with a view to mass adoption and scale.”
Story2 is NYC-born and bred, with a global reach: the platform is currently serving students in over 56 countries. For educators, NYC provides a cornucopia of innovative schools–publics, charters, and independents–and thought leaders at public and private universities.
“CUNY was a tremendous resource to us in our early research around storytelling and writing fluency,” said Barash.
