The Too-Huge World, the Next Crazy Venture, and Sad Good-byes to College Prep Session One!

Two weeks, twenty class sessions, four essays, four practice exams, and five college visits later, Session One of College Prep has wrapped. The time flew by, and it will be a shame to say good bye! Dsc_0725 This group of students has continually impressed me with how vibrant, thoughtful, and intelligent they are. College Prep is an intensive program– we work them hard, and we ask a lot from them in a short period of time. That being said, our students this session really rose to the occasion. I return them to their respective families, friends, and countries both wiser and more exhausted than they arrived, and with an abundance of memories, experiences, and friends here in Boston. Last night we had our final dinner at Mother Anna’s in the North End. Finishing the session with some good, home-cooked Italian food on a beautiful, warm July night was the perfect way to relax and finish off these two very intense weeks. Sunday will bring a whole new set of faces, perspectives, and experiences. Session Two begins tomorrow, and I know our next group of students will be just as impressive and inspiring as this group.

Dsc_0948 In saying good-bye, let me borrow from the Beats: “What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? ― it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”

― Jack Kerouac, On the Road

  Thanks, Session One, you guys are all-stars. Warm wishes and good luck in the rest of your summer adventures, final year(s) of high school, and college applications! ― Megan Hooper
