Writing Academy

Write for life! Whether it’s a simple email, a thank-you note, a complex essay or report, our Writing Academy classes will help you with content, organization, tone, and purpose.

The Academy offers three levels of classes, from the basics of sentence creation to paragraph development and essay writing. Students who complete the required assignments can earn Certificates of Achievement and/or Proficiency.

***Students will provide a writing sample during the first class to determine their level.***
