The Common Application opened on August 1st but students do not have to approach the application on their own. Help is available!

Seniors are invited to participate in a Common Application Workshop on Wednesday, August 10th from 9:30 until 12:00 p.m. at Trinity High School. This is a great opportunity to become familiar with the Common Application, which is used by over 800 colleges and universities. Ms. Granholm will guide students step-by-step through the sections of the Common App and address commonly asked questions. Some aspects of the Common Application will require clarification and information from Ms. Granholm, so it's in the student's best interest to attend this, or a future workshop.

Following the application workshop, students wishing to get started on the Common Application Essay may want to attend an essay writing workshop from 1:00-2:30pm hosted by Trinity English teacher, Mr. Lombardo. Mr. Lombardo is a published author and working on a forthcoming book focused on the college application personal essay! He's a wonderful in-house resource for our students.

Students are asked to RSVP for these workshops by Monday, August 8th. Due to space constraints, late registrations will not be accepted. Ms. Granholm will then send instructions so that each student comes to the workshop prepared and with the materials needed to start completing the application.

Additional application workshops will be held throughout the fall. Watch for more information when we return to school.
