Academic Essay Writing

Summer Language Arts

Our Academic Essay Writing course offers an intensive study of the how and why of academic writing. In two weeks, students learn how to plan, draft, and revise an academic essay, and also why such essays matter: why people write them, why people read them, and why teachers and professors care so much about them. Featuring the popular college writing textbook, They Say / I Say: The Moves That Matter in Academic Writing, the course approaches the essay as part of a larger conversation being held among scholars. The tools students gain in this course will help them enter that conversation, both in their middle- and high-school careers, and in college.

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day, and is designed for students entering grades 7-10.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there is more than a week before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due one week before the course begins.

"My children have been students of AoPS Academy for several years now. The staff is very good at identifying and encouraging high achieving students to attain their fullest potential. The instructors engage kids to solve tough math problems, and push them to think logically and come up with unique solutions, instead of following a memorized formula. I have witnessed many classes where students are given the opportunity to suggest multiple ways of approaching the same problem. This has really helped my children develop independent learning skills and a stronger foundation in mathematics. The staff truly care for each and every student’s growth. Every child gets an abundance of individual attention. Programs such as the math competition classes, MATHCOUNTS Trainer Contest, and Short Story Contest really challenge the kids to reach up to the next level. The language arts classes like Debate & Public Speaking and College Essay Writing provide a much higher quality of education for their students. Thank you so much for being such a valuable resource for my children. "
