Students will work in small groups to solve programming challenges and compete against each other on the final day. Students will also gain understanding of design logic, computational thinking and scripting languages.

Common App Bootcamp for Rising High School Seniors

August 7 - 11
9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Today, more than 600 colleges/universities accept the Common Application, or Common App. Because t’s often difficult to find focused time to work on it once school is back in session, we offer this workshop to help guide rising seniors through the Common App process. Students will complete all parts of the common app, including the generic information required by all schools. This workshop is led by our highly sought-out college counseling team of Mimi Csatlos and Amy Koudelka.
