2021 College Prep & Academic Programs:

Find your Voice
Jump Start your College Essay
Faculty Member: Brennan Barnard
Ages: Rising 11th and 12th graders
Dates: June TBD and August TBD (Monday-Friday), 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Location: The Derryfield School - room TBD
Cost: $375

This intensive writing workshop, is designed to create a space for rising 11th and 12th graders to begin the creative process of drafting their college essay. The workshop is much more than the college process; as students will work with Derryfield’s experienced Director of College Counseling to find ways to uncover their unique story and draft an essay that truly reflects their values and life experiences. This class will be run in person with time spent sharing our writing as a group and individual time writing with guidance from the teacher. On the final day of the workshop, a college admission officer will join us to provide the college perspective on the personal statement and to read drafts of essays.
This workshop is designed to run with a small cohort of students to ensure personal attention and therefore we will consider offering additional weeks throughout the summer if there is interest.
Registration will open mid-February.
