GHS College Essay Workshop

GHS Guidance has offered a College Essay Workshop to rising seniors in August for the past six years.  This workshop serves as a fundraiser for the Greenwich Alliance for Education.  The Alliance mobilizes community resources to provide opportunities and services that foster educational success for all Greenwich Public School students.  

This year’s workshop will be held virtually on Google Meets and  focuses exclusively on the personal essay (Common App questions) and supplemental essays, including the COVID-19 related optional question.  

The workshop is comprised of 8 sessions:

Monday through Thursday August 16 - 19 from 3pm-5pm 


Monday through Thursday August 23 - 26 from 3pm-5pm 

The fee for the 8 sessions is $400.  This fee is reduced for students who have a free/reduced lunch approval, or for students in the GHS AVID program.  

Our amazing AVID trained English teachers Ms. Brown and Ms. Bowcock will lead the workshop.   We will have five adults working with fifty students.  The workshop will include a combination of live instruction/discussion, individual work time, and live one-to-one discussion/support/editing in each of the 8 sessions.  Students may keep all shared resources.  

Registration is on a first come first served basis.  Registration will close when we reach our maximum of 50.
