Star Alumni Help Rising Seniors with College Essays at Writers’ Workshop

Each year, our rising seniors spend their first week of summer break working with our faculty to help complete their college essays at the Writers’ Workshop. Our faculty from the English and Language Arts department, with a ratio of six Stars per faculty member, support each senior by helping collaborate to get over the hurdle of brainstorming a topic, getting their thoughts written out on the page, and drafting a compelling essay. This year, our Star alumni joined the team to help provide advice and proofread with a fresh set of eyes to offer feedback. By the end of the week, our rising seniors from the Class of 2025 have a completed essay and a plan for getting recommendations to help kick-start their college application process with the goal of attending college in the fall of 2025.
