Summer College Essay Academy
A one-week summer academy for Boston students to work with tutors and perfect their personal statements for college applications.
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
Hours: 12:30-3:30 pm
Location: 826 Boston Center, 3035 Washington St., Roxbury
Cost is free; $25 deposit, which will be refunded after the student attends all five days, will be requested at registration. Deadline for registration: May 30.
