College Boot Camp at MLWGS in August

Posted on

Dear Juniors and Parents, 

Registration for College Application Boot Camp will be open as of April 16th! You will receive an email as soon as registration opens.

The mission of College Boot Camp is to provide rising seniors space and time to complete their Common Application and/or Coalition Application (and/or other application of their choice) before the start of the school year. Boot Camp will be held from August 24th through August 26th, 2020. A morning (9 am-12 pm) and afternoon (1-4 pm) will be offered. College Boot Camp is an optional fee-based workshop led by senior counselors. The cost of Boot Camp is $55 and this fee will not be collected until August. Fee waivers are available if paying for Boot Camp would be an obstacle. Please email Kierstin Streitel (kstreitel@gsgis.k12.va.us) with any questions or if you would like to request a fee waiver. Registration will close on May 31st. Registration operates on a “first-come, first-served” basis, so if you are interested in attending please register as soon as possible. 

More information about College Boot Camp: The MLWGS Senior Counselors will provide a structured curriculum over three, three-hour sessions with specific tips and personal assistance at every step. College Boot Camp is designed to walk students through each section of the Common Application and/or Coalition Application and provide them with the resources to complete each section during the program. A guest speaker will address the essay specifically, and the students should leave the Boot Camp with their Common App primary essay (or another essay of their choice) in a completed draft form. There will be some group discussion, peer editing, quiet individual work time, and one-on-one consultations. The Boot Camp will also touch on college-specific supplements and popular institutional applications. Topics can be adjusted based on the needs of the group.

We are very hopeful that we will be able to come together as a group for Boot Camp in August. However, if that is not the case, we will be making adjustments in order to still provide Boot Camp via video conference, etc. In the event that we need to switch formats, the cost of the program will be lowered. Thank you for your patience and understanding! 

We can’t wait to see you all again in person!
