College Essay Boot Camp @ ECCSS Admin Building
Jun 4 – Aug 20 all-day

Your college admissions essay is one of the most important things you will ever write. It can make or break your efforts to get into your first-choice school and earn you the scholarships you need to pay for it.

An entire industry has risen up to “coach” students to write better essays. Some families pay $300 an hour – up to $5,000 total – for this service. You can do that … or you can get the same service free of charge here at ECC.

ECCSS President Sam MacDonald and a few colleagues will host an introductory “strategy session” to offer tips on getting started. They will critique your essay.

Subsequent drafts will be reviewed via e-mail. Mr. MacDonald will NOT write your essay; he will work WITH you to craft a great essay.

The service is open to ALL members of the ECCHS Class of 2019, but will be capped at 12 students.

Mr. MacDonald is the author of two books. His work has appeared in newspapers and national magazines. He has a degree in history and economics from Yale and an MFA in creative writing from the University of Pittsburgh. He taught writing at Pitt for four years.

See the testimonials below from past participants when asked if they found College Essay Boot Camp beneficial (these students were accepted into extremely competitive first-choice colleges):

“Yes, yes, yes! You need to do it again!”

“I personally think it was such a good idea! I know I wouldn’t have spent as much time as I did on my essay if it wasn’t for the essay class. I recommend it for sure.”

Math Camp (Students entering grades 1-3) @ St. Marys Catholic Elementary School
Jun 18 @ 10:00 am – Jun 22 @ 12:00 pm

Throw out the pencil and paper and join us for an exciting and interactive math experience! Math is even more fun when a hands-on dimension is factored into the equation. Students will use various manipulatives (i.e. playing cards, dominoes, dice, Legos, etc.) to brush up on their skills in a fun way through center learning activities.

“Welcome to Kindergarten” Readiness Program @ St. Marys Catholic Elementary School
Jul 30 @ 8:30 am – Aug 3 @ 11:00 am

Providing a personal touch and individual attention, our own St. Marys Catholic Elementary School teachers will foster learning in a child-centered environment allowing growth in social, emotional, spiritual, and academic areas. Each day of camp will have its own unique focus to sharpen the skills necessary for kindergarten, such as letter and number recognition, letter-sound association, reading, handwriting, basic math concepts, fine and gross motor skills, active play/making friends, etc. Themed days will also take place.

This program is open to all students, but please note that priority will be given to those students enrolled in kindergarten at St. Marys Catholic Elementary School.
