This camp at Yale University is the perfect gateway to Writing for College for 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 years olds.
Get prepared for college and beyond by taking part in our writing for college program! Professionals in the field will help you master the skills needed for writing college essays, resumes and give you further insight into what it takes to become a writer!
Writing for College = Writing for Life. The course stresses the fundamentals of writing, prepares students for college applications as students create their own resumes and master their college essays. Students will also be introduced to specific AP and college-level writing techniques – skills that are not only useful in their high school days, but in college and beyond.
Top: Since we are based in the heart of New England with access to the premier facilities offered by Yale University, this program will combine time in the classroom with visits around the New Haven area. Students will have the chance to experience interesting tourist and academic-related locations to help broaden their experience and expose them to one of the most exciting areas of the East Coast. Additionally, we’ll enjoy the fun attractions in the vicinity. All excursions are fully supervised by Summer Springboard staff.
Summer Springboard program for high school students on the campus of Yale University
Just like a college student at Yale, students share a dorm room with roommates and use a common bathroom. Floors are gender-segregated and rooms contain an extra-long twin size bed, desks, drawers, and a closet. Due to the historic nature of the campus, residential colleges are not air-conditioned. Even though you’re away from home, your Resident Advisor (RA) lives just down the hall and is there for anything you might need, and to ensure your safety and security. In addition, RAs create a community, provide support, plan activities and help you get the most out of your stay at Yale. Other members of the Summer Springboard staff also live on campus and are available to support students and tackle emergencies, 24 hours a day.
During your Summer Springboard program at Yale, you will live in a residential college on campus. All residential colleges have 24-hour security and use electronic key cards to enter gates and entryways. Yale Police and Security is available 24 hours a day and actively monitor the campus.
Yale is organized into 12 separate residential colleges around an internal courtyard with multiple entryways. The entryway defines local “neighborhoods” within each college, offering students a sense of security and community. Our high school summer program at Yale has its own dedicated entryway. There is wireless internet throughout campus and coin operated laundry facilities are within the dorms.
Meals will be eaten at the dining hall, walking distance from the dormitory where we live. Students may also take a short walk to dozens of restaurants and dining options in the New Haven neighborhood.
