College Essay Boot Camp

What: Don’t wait until school starts – take the pressure off and get that college application essay done early with Brimmer and May’s college essay writing workshop! This program will offer rising 12th graders a targeted study hall with Brimmer’s own College Counselors to get your college entrance essay completed.

Our college essay boot camp will consist of 12 hours: 3 hours per day with the first hour designed as a lesson and second and third hours directed to working. We are offering 2 sections, to accommodate working students, and each section will be limited to 20 students to ensure maximum oversight and support. Our college essay writing program will be in person, on the Brimmer and May campus, and students will need to provide their own writing surfaces or tool.

Please note: Brimmer students will receive these lessons as part of their senior year College Counseling curriculum irrespective of attendance in this program.
