In the Young Writer's Enrichment Institute, students will learn to write effective expository paragraphs with focus and clarity; develop their reading comprehension skills; and improve their time management, organizational, and study habits in preparation for high school. Outside the classroom, students take part in daily athletics as well as on- and off-campus trips and activities. This two-week residential program is for U.S. residents only.
