College Selection and Application Bootcamps

small-groups-iconJuly 30- Aug 3, 2018 from 10:00-3:30 daily

Some students do their best work in intensive, small-group, in-person settings. We offer week-long sessions in the summer in San Francisco and Oakland. Students who attend a Snap Academics week-long session will leave the application bootcamp with a completed Common application, UC application, and CA State University application. Students will also leave with final essay drafts, personalized calendars with individual deadlines, due dates, and next steps. All students receive a  one-on-one college selection counseling session prior to the start of the class, essay draft revision, and one edit of applications before they are submitted.

Is the bootcamp right for you?

Students who attend bootcamp style week-long application program generally report feeling that they’ve accomplished months worth of work in just a week. Our small group sessions are ideal for families who don’t want the application process to drag on for months and for students who need a concentrated block of time and the energy of other students to successfully complete the college selection and application process. Believe it or not, our small group sessions will be fun and students will bond and form strong relationships with their teacher-counselor, essay coach, and peers.

Each small group session is run by a counselor, application coach, and essay instructor/editor. Classes are limited to 10 students.
