Advanced Writing Lab

Advanced Writing Lab is designed for students who have mastered Writing Lab or Literacy Lab, or already possess high reading and writing skills. Our unique curriculum gives high-achieving students the tools needed to maximize potential, and to increase levels of proficiency in writing.

In Lab, students critically analyze a variety of advanced texts with corresponding essay prompts. Students also engage in independent practice, guided by an expert teacher’s valuable, immediate feedback.

With increased confidence, proficiency and experience, our Advanced Writing students advance in the classroom, and achieve higher scores on college admissions exams.
