College Essay Boot Camp

Jenny Blue, the talented and energetic Chair of the English Department at Kimball Union Academy, will lead a "College Essay Boot Camp" for rising high school seniors. During the three half-day sessions, students will generate topics, read and analyze model essays, learn writing techniques that are particularly applicable to college essay writing, produce drafts and receive feedback from both peers and Ms. Blue. Closer to the fall deadline for college applications, Ms. Blue will provide feedback on an additional draft of the essay.

Students will leave the boot camp with a draft of the 650 word essay for use on the common application.
