Summer College Essay Academy at 826 Boston

In this intensive five-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.

Dates: Monday, July 24 – Friday, July 28, 1—3 PM*
Location: 826 Boston Center, 3035 Washington St., Roxbury
