Students will hear examples of superior and inferior essays. The bootcamp begins with a brainstorming survey before the start date. Students will receive three custom-tailored ideas to choose from (or they may choose their own). Over the course of the bootcamp, students will write, receive edits, and revise until they come away with a completed essay in their authentic voice. Open to all high school students – rising seniors can use the essay for the Common Application.
