College Application Boot Camp

College Application Boot Camp for Rising High School Seniors

2019 Dates (tentative): Monday - Friday: August 5 - August 9
9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. 
Hight Library on the VES Campus
Today, more than 750 colleges/universities accept the Common Application®, frequently referred to as the "Common App®." 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.
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. Students will complete all parts of the Common App, including the generic information required by all schools.

Eliminate the stress and anxiety and complete the Common App 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."
