Crafting Your College Application Camp


Register and Pay for Crafting Your College Application (2018)

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 eight students, and you will get feedback on everything you write. There is homework.

In the past, camp weeks have filled up early. This year, because of the school schedule, there are only four weeks of camp rather than five.  We are expecting to have a wait list and may open a second location if there is enough interest. Nancy Levonian is the lead teacher.  Paul Rivas, who has been working with me for three years, will be the lead teacher at the second location, TBD. Charlotte Graham of 360 Degree speaking teaches Interviewing Techniques.

Camp is five days (Monday – Friday).
