Video Essay

Submit a video explaining to Acton’s Admissions Committee why they should accept you over other qualified applicants.  What special skills will you bring to the classroom?   Your video should be no longer than two minutes.

Please follow the instructions below to submit your video:

  1. Create a free account at Vimeo (a video sharing website)
  2. Upload your video
  3. Edit the privacy settings of your video to make the video “private.” When prompted, please enter “acton” as the password. The password must be “acton” or the admissions committee will be unable to access your video and your application will not be reviewed.
  4. After a few minutes, your essay will be processed by Vimeo and become viewable. Once it is viewable, go to your video and click the “embed” button, which is superimposed over its upper-right hand corner. After clicking, a new box will appear.
  5. Copy and paste the embed link in the appropriate field below.
