Demystify the differences between college and high school writing.

The Writing Summer Institute is designed for ambitious high school students who seek to strengthen their writing and discussion skills to get a step ahead in preparing for university. For over twenty years, UCLA Writing Programs has helped undergraduates successfully meet the challenges of a university education. Through this three-week program, UCLA’s highly regarded writing specialists will help college-bound students prepare for academic challenges at the college level. All activities will demystify the unstated differences between college and high school writing. Students will learn how to successfully approach the college application process, including the application essay.
