Course & Camp Offerings:

Writing the College Application Essay - ONLINE COURSE

Open to incoming La Salle 12th graders

August 10 – 13, 9-11:30 am

Fee: $125

Instructor:  Monty Mickelson

 

The prospect of having to compose and submit a personal essay is, for many students, the most daunting aspect of the college application process. Introducing yourself—your very best self—in a mere 650 words (or less) may seem like the literary equivalent of building a ship in a bottle. Writing the College Application Essay helps demystify this process and alleviates much of the anxiety young writers often bring to this task.

 

The instructor, Monty Mickelson, is ready to use Schoology and video conferencing tools to support students through the essay writing process.  As in past years, this process will involve some large group video conferencing during the first two days, and independent writing time with instructor feedback on the second two days. 

 

The class will review successful essays on a broad range of topics and styles. Students will brainstorm ideas, and then commence drafting a personal essay that conforms to one of the Common Application prompts. During a revision phase, students will edit for tone and content while preserving their own authentic voice.  

 

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and current state restrictions, athletic camps will not be available in June or July. We hope to offer camps in August as state and local authorities allow. More information to come.
