This summer’s College Application Workshop (a.k.a. “Bootcamp”) will run from August 3-6. Bootcamp participants should plan to be busy from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on those days. Students unable to attend all days of Bootcamp must speak with their college counselor before registering for the program. Bootcamp serves as a writing workshop to guide students towards the composition of compelling and distinctive college essays, but many other important topics are also extensively covered. Other Bootcamp activities include interview preparation, a panel of Providence Academy alumni on the college application process, plus candid feedback from admission professionals on essays, resumes, and interviews.
The June Essay Workshop is scheduled for Friday, June 26. This one-day workshop will provide students with the opportunity to explore essay topic ideas with the help of guided brainstorming exercises and one-on-one consultation with the college counselors. The June Essay Workshop can be a great option for students interested in starting their writing process earlier in the summer and/or those who have a conflict with Bootcamp.
