College Essay Academy at Margarita Muñiz Academy

In this intensive four-day writing program, students will dive into the written aspects of the Common Application and work in small groups to brainstorm, draft, and revise their personal statements. This important writing sample is more than an essay: it is the place where students get to tell their story and stand apart from other applicants. At the end of the program, each student should leave with an advanced draft.

Information for volunteers
Dates:
Monday Sept. 4, 12:30 – 3:30 PM, training at 826 Boston’s office
