College Application Boot Camp

College Application Boot Camp for Rising High School Seniors

2019 Dates: Monday - Friday: August 5 - 9
9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. 
Hight Library on the VES Campus
In this workshop, our highly sought-out college counseling team of Mimi Csatlos, Amy Koudelka and Elizabeth Blaum will help guide rising seniors through the process of completing their college applications, including all parts of the Common App® and the Coalition for College Application®. As you likely know, the college application process is time-consuming, and it’s often difficult to find focused time to work on it once school is back in session. So, eliminate the stress and anxiety and complete your applications before you go back to school! 


"The College Application Boot Camp got me ahead of the game so that I didn’t have to stress about it on top of my challenging difficult senior course load during the year. It was great to have some expertise and extra tips on not only the essay but every part of the Common App that I would never have known without this program."

"Felt good to get my common app knocked out so early. It saved my fall semester a lot of added stress."
