The New School of Northern Virginia
2019 Summer Programs
Instructor: Carolina McLean Credit: 0.5 English Dates: June 24th-July 12th (no class July 4th-5th)
The first semester of senior year is incredibly demanding, with students often struggling with the many challenges of college applications and essays, standardized tests, senior exhibitions, and school coursework. This three-week class is designed to help make the fall semester more manageable and to improve the overall quality of work produced. By focusing on the college application process and the senior exhibition over the summer, students are able to enter their senior year with many of their responsibilities completed, enabling them to focus on their classes and the senior exhibition.
This course will focus on:
* writing effective and compelling college application essays
* constructing a timeline for completing their senior exhibition benchmarks
* beginning the research and outline for their senior exhibition papers
Students interested in participating in this course are encouraged to begin the college selection process this spring so they know which college essays to work on over the summer. Cost: $950

The goal of this 3-week internship is to plan and implement a program that best serves the goals of an orphanage in Nakuru, Kenya. New School students will receive high school credit for designing a summer program that could have a long term, profound effect on young people in one of the poorest parts of the country.
