What's Included

The Common Application is a non-profit organization working with more than 500 universities nationwide to help streamline the college application process. In our weeklong summer workshop, rising juniors and seniors will work to create a polished essay that can be submitted with The Common Application. Class time will focus on planning, organizing, and drafting the essay, though students should be prepared to spend time outside of class perfecting their work. The camp instructor, Mrs. Pierce, is an English teacher at Saint Mary’s who will spend one-on-one time with each student to help them present their best written self. Virginia Pierce graduated with a degree in English Education from East Carolina University in 2009, and with a Master’s degree in English Studies from East Carolina University in 2010. She attended boarding school in England during her middle school years, which was an experience that drew her to the Saint Mary’s community.
