Registration for our Summer 2022 Essay Boot Camps is Open NOW!
"The truth is that while no essay will make an unqualified student acceptable, a good essay can help a qualified applicant stand out from the competition. A good essay just might be what turns a 'maybe' into a 'yes.'"
-- Martha C. Merrill, Dean of Admissions, Connecticut College, NYT 6/23/09

We're excited to announce that our Essay Camps for rising seniors will be in person this summer. Each class size will be limited to 20 students. Zoom sessions can be made available for those who can't meet in person.
Essay A (the first part of our camp) is being offered on five dates. The first camp will be held in McCall; all other camps will be in Boise. Students choose one date that works for them: Saturday, May 14 from 10 AM to 1:30 (McCall only!), Tuesday, June 7 from 10 AM to 1:30, Thursday, June 9 from noon to 3:30 PM, Monday, June 13 from 10 AM to 1:30 PM, OR Wednesday, June 15 from noon to 3:30 PM. ($150)
Essay B is the editing coaching part of our camps and you'll schedule that individually with one of our advisors, once you've complete Essay A and have written a personal statement rough draft (hopefully sometime in August; sooner if you're ready and eager to get going. (A plus B $275)
If you're a private client, this camp is included in your package, so no additional cost to you, and you and your advisor will schedule your Part B as soon as you've written your first rough draft. Just fill out the form to let us know when and if you can come in June! If you're a private client and can't come to one of these sessions, contact your advisor and set up a time to meet at your convenience, in June. The McCall Camp is grant-funded, so there will be no cost to students.
As always, we provide need-based scholarships for all qualified students. Indicate your interest in a scholarship when you sign up.
