College Application Training Camp

Vistamar School is proud to offer rising seniors an opportunity to get a jump-start on college applications during our annual College Application Training Camp. Held at Vistamar during early August, our training camp is a comprehensive, week-long program when seniors and Life Planners work hand-in-hand to:

  • Create and complete Common App and UC accounts
  • Research colleges and create draft list
  • Draft personal statement or Common App essay
  • Receive feedback from peers and Life Planners on draft essay
  • Create resume or “brag-sheet”
  • Conduct mock interviews
  • Organize supplemental questions around similar topics/themes
  • Do a case study exercise led by a college rep simulating an Admissions Committee meeting
Attending College Application Training Camp is optional, but most rising seniors attend. And our families tell us year after year that this highly productive week is one more reason that our Life Planning approach takes the frenzy out of the college process.
