College Essay Bootcamp   (Hybrid)

Join us for a 5-day workshop designed for soon-to-be twelfth graders, aimed at crafting compelling personal statements that colleges eagerly anticipate. Throughout this intensive program, students will delve into a myriad of application topics, emphasizing the significance of style – understanding that it's not solely about what is said, but also how it's conveyed. Through interactive sessions, participants will analyze sample personal statements, engage in drafting exercises, share their work for constructive feedback, and undergo multiple rounds of revision and editing. By the workshop's conclusion, students will emerge with several promising starts and a refined personal statement draft, equipped to captivate admission officers with their unique narratives and voices.
