College Application Essay Writing Bootcamp

Join Spark Prep Director, Luke Taylor, and Julie Lythcott-Haims, former Dean of Freshmen at Stanford, for this special three-day workshop that will equip students with powerful tools to take on their college applications with confidence.

The key to a successful admissions application is writing with authenticity, purpose, and focus.

Spark Prep’s College Application Essay Writing Bootcamp is a fun and intensive workshop that will give high school seniors a unique and empowering approach to completing their college applications without the stress and worry most of us have come to expect from the college admissions process.

This workshop will teach applicants how to brainstorm meaningful topics for their essays, strategically organize their material for personal statements and supplements, and analyze successful strategies used by former applicants.

We will also learn specific style and structure tools that support clear and convincing writing. Spark Prep’s philosophy is simple: the process of applying to college is an opportunity to clarify your deepest values and purpose.

By understanding what you find meaningful, acquiring some fundamental structure and writing skills, students will design an application that will make their candidacy unique, clear, and compelling.
