Academic Essay Writing

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.

"Our homeschooled son is extremely gifted in math and science.  He really feels at home at AoPS Academy.  Through coaching and personal attention at AoPS, he achieved a 5 in AP Calculus at 11 years old and a 4 in AP Statistics at 12.  He also achieved an 800 on SAT II math at 12 years old.  Our son feels very comfortable in the atmosphere of AoPS, where being gifted in math is not looked down on, but treated with respect.  He has truly found his peers at AoPS Academy. 

AoPS Academy allows my son to be himself, learn that there are other kids well advanced in math, and gives him the confidence to know that it is OK to be great in math, and that other people will respect and value his ability."
