    Pillar College will host an intensive writing skills program July 10–20 at the college’s Newark Campus, located at 60 Park Place. In-person classes for this two-week college “boot camp,” known as the Summer Accelerator, will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Monday through Thursday, during both weeks of the program. Space is limited, and registration must be submitted by June 30. Students who register by June 15 will receive Pillar College gear.

    The program is an opportunity for 2023 and 2024 high school seniors and 2023 high school graduates to prepare for college by improving their writing skills as they increase their ability to think critically, solve problems, communicate effectively, speak persuasively, and engage digitally. Enrollment is limited to New Jersey residents who are 2023 or 2004 high school seniors, or 2023 high school graduates. Students also must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 to be eligible. As an option, the Summer Accelerator also gives students the opportunity to earn three college credits if they successfully complete the writing skills class and pay a tuition fee of $546.

    Cindy Weaver, Executive Director of Pillar’s Life Enhancing Accelerated Degree program, described the Summer Accelerator as “two short weeks packed with ways to prepare for the next milestone in your life – college!” Weaver also emphasized the value of this program by quoting George Washington Carver, who said: “There is no shortcut to achievement. Life requires thorough preparation…”
