Virtual Summer 2021 College Essay Boot Camp 

In this four session virtual group summer Boot Camp, I will work with rising high school seniors to brainstorm, identify and develop a response to a Common Application Essay prompt that sparks self-inquiry, excellent writing, and contributes to the overall application.

The purpose of the Boot Camp is to create a clear, guided focus and space to complete outstanding essays that reflect who the applicant is and what they will add to the intellectual and social fabric of a campus. The goal is to have a strong draft of the Common Application Essay completed by the end of the Boot Camp. Supplemental essay camps and packages are also available.

Hope is not lost. Join me to learn how you can support your student in the college application process in an unprecedented time.
