THE WRITING CENTER

Not just for students in English classes, The Writing Center helps with writing assignments or projects in any subject area.  From brain storming topics to formatting the final paper or project, The Writing Center instructor guides students through every part of the writing process.

The Writing Center is located in the Library, and students attend during their study hall time. Sign-up times are posted weekly online. Though walk-ins may sometimes be accommodated, students are encouraged to sign-up since assistance is limited to five students per hour. Students without a study hall may schedule an appointment before or after school.
