Lake Anna + Friends + Support + Laughter = Magnificent Essays

PDF Print E-mail

For the 8th year in a row, GWCS seniors and teachers visited beautiful Lake Anna for the College Essay Writing Retreat. Over three days and two nights, students were given the time and space to present an authentic version of themselves in their college essays. With over twelve solid hours of writing time, in addition to lessons and group activities, there was no shortage of inspiration or support. In addition to writing their essays, seniors made meals for each other, played football and manhunt and even did a little fishing. A great time was had by all, but most importantly, seniors can move forward with their college applications confident that one of the biggest stumbling blocks has been removed.
