Fall 2015 Events
The ACE Workshop (Application & College Essay)
As students entering the 12th grade look forward to their last year of high school, many of them do not realize that college application season is right around the corner. With essays to write, deadlines to meet, and schools to choose, the process can easily become overwhelming.
The ACE (Application & College Essay) Workshop is a four-day, intensive workshop (totaling 24 hours) designed to teach students seeking to attend U.S. universities how to write effective and compelling personal statements and how to put their best foot forward on the college application. Experienced essay specialists will meet individually with students to help them with the essay writing and editing process. Enrollment will be limited to a 3:1 student-to-teacher ratio.
Students will finish the week with the Common Application completed and solid drafts of at least 3 essays. They will gain a valuable jump start on the process and be prepared for the U.S. college application process during the fall.
