Crafting Your College Application Camp


Register and Pay for Crafting Your College Application (2018)

Camps full; still accepting wait list enrollment.

Camp Description

Our summer camp, for rising seniors, is a focused yet relaxed way to write a superb college application. Finish your application during one week in August and face the college application process feeling on top of things and in-control. Learn how to put your best foot forward, and how to avoid “red flags” that can ruin an otherwise stellar application. I limit the camp to nine students, and you will get feedback on everything you write. There is homework.

Like in the past, our camp weeks have filled up early! Because of the school schedule, there are only four weeks of camp in 2018 rather than five. In addition, we are strictly limiting each week of camp to 9 students for a comfortable, highly individualized experience. Sign up now if you would like to be on the wait list.

Nancy Levonian is the lead teacher.  Veteran assistants Stacey Ipsan, Julie Sweedler, and Charlotte Graham of 360 Degree Speaking (teaching Interviewing Techniques) round out the teaching team.

Camp is five days (Monday – Friday).
