Overview of College Enrichment Offerings

The Fremont Union High School District, in partnership with the City of Cupertino Recreation & Community Services, is pleased to offer a  college preparation course for High School Juniors (class of 2017), taught by experienced FUHSD Teachers, Guidance Counselors and College/Career Advisors:

College Planning Workshop (CPW)

Offered in Spring to Juniors

and Summer to rising Seniors only

This overview class guides students in reflecting on themselves as students and identifying goals and plans for college. Emphasis is placed on organizing the college search and application process.

  • Topics include: individual academic profile, finding a college match, choosing a major, understanding college systems, application tips and tricks, managing deadlines, applying for financial aid, and letters of recommendation.
  • Students will develop and receive personalized feedback on a list of prospective colleges to which they will apply in the fall.

College Essay Workshop (CEW)

Offered in Fall to Seniors only

and Summer to rising Seniors

This workshop allows students to brainstorm, write, and refine a personal statement essay required for UC or private college applications. Students will have several opportunities to work one-on-one with instructors and revise their drafts:

  • Review essay prompts; read sample essays; review essay tips and tricks; and write and revise a college application essay.
  • Students will draft a college application essay, receive personalized feedback, and use the feedback to revise and improve the essay.
