College Application & Essay Workshop

(entering grade 12)
college application

About the Course:

This two-day workshop is designed to allow busy students the opportunity to learn about what college admission counselors are looking for in an application and personal statement. We will read sample essays and applications of accepted students and brainstorm essay topics that will help them stand out in a crowded field of applicants. Students will have structured time to complete major components of their application(s) while receiving feedback from the instructors. The goal will be for students to leave this workshop with a substantial amount of the application and essay completed.

Students must bring their own laptop or tablet.
