Writing the Common App College Essay (Special Schedule)

Special Schedule: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Duration/ Session: 3 weeks Session 1 Only
A strong reflective essay provides key insights into a student via narrative, analysis, and personal voice. Integrating these three elements into the common app college essay requires specialized writing skills. This course will act as a brainstorming and writing intensive workshop that will prepare rising seniors to discover how to articulate themselves as individuals via the common app essay. As students continue through the drafting process over the course of three weeks, they will get continued feedback from the instructor as well as have the opportunity to practice multiple drafts of their major college essay. At the end of the course, the students will have a solid reflective writing foundation (and essay!) for the start of their senior year.
