College Essay Writing Bootcamp

What: Don’t wait until school starts – take the pressure off and get that essay done early! This program will offer rising 12th graders a targeted study hall with Brimmer’s own College Counselors to get their college entrance essay completed. The course 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 four sections, to accommodate working students, and each section will be limited to 20 students to ensure maximum oversight and support. This 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.
