Welcome to the College Application Camp homepage. In August of 2013, forty-four Beechwood students and ten out-of-district students began their college application journey. By the end of the week, students left with quality essays and completed applications. More importantly, they left with a keen understanding of the college admissions process that helped them navigate their entire senior year. In 2014, forty-nine Beechwood seniors attended camp, along with seventeen out-of-district students. I 2015, sixty-two of 102 Beechwood seniors attended camp.
Here are some highlights over the last three years. Keep in mind that this camp cannot take credit for what these kids have accomplished, but we like to think we helped!

-Along with a similar camp in Maryland, this camp has been presented as a model at the 2014 and 2015 NACAC National Conferences, where over 850 counselors from around the country attended.
