College Application Essay

This course is designed for rising seniors working on college application essays.  Tips, strategies, facilitated brainstorming, individual consultation, and feedback for revising/editing will be provided.

Although the atmosphere will be relaxed, it will be bootcamp-style and students should come prepared to work.  Our goal is for every participant to organize and streamline the college application essay process, brainstorm appropriate topics, draft essays, and receive feedback on drafts.  To maximize the bootcamp, participants should expect to spend 1 - 2 hours each day on homework. 


This course will be taught by St. Pius X counselor Dr. Meredith A. Miller and St. Pius X English teachers Trey Broussard and Elizabeth Ross. 

UPDATE 7/6/17: online registration is now closed.  However, there are a few spots available in the session that runs 7/17 - 7/20, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM.  Please email Dr. Miller (mmiller@spx.org) if you are interested in one of these spots.
