Bring your college admission or scholarship essay(s) and VIRTUALLY meet with Crosby staff and volunteers experienced in critiquing students’ writing. The purpose of this essay is to work with three different readers and receive immediate feedback. Essays will be reviewed primarily for content with respect to following the prompt and being clear on what students are trying to share about themselves. Those students whose essays reveal significant deficiencies in grammar, punctuation, and spelling will be advised to consult an English teacher for assistance in cleaning up those aspects of their writing.
Your appointment will be hosted over Zoom and you will share your screen with the readers in a private break-out room during the zoom academy.
A few days before the academy, you will receive an e-mail with your specific virtual appointment time and detailed instructions on how to join the virtual bootcamp. *Registration is required in your Crosby Scholars Student Portal.
Remember, you MUST bring a completed essay(s) to this virtual meeting. If you need help understanding how to write the application essay, please register for CSA#10.
A brief primer on Crosby Scholars Senior Academies: Academies are held annually over a 6-month period (July to December); students must attend two and are free to choose those that best suit their needs and interests; the most up-to-date information on the academies is found in the student portal; while they are a program requirement, academies are best viewed as opportunities to gain knowledge and skills that guide students through senior year and into post-secondary education.
