As shy freshman walks into the room.
“Welcome to the Writing Center,” I said with a smile. “Are you here for a conference?”
“Yes,” he replied, blushing.
“Alright buddy,” I swiveled in my chair, gesturing towards one of the two tables in the back of the room. “Take a seat and I’ll be with you in a sec.”
This is the real-life exchange between me, a Writing Center advisor, and a recent “client”. Actually, any student who walks into the Writing Center is met with a smile and a warm greeting, guaranteed.
The GA Writing Center is truly one of a kind. Few high schools in the nation have a completely student-staffed Writing Center where students, aka clients, can sign up to meet with specially trained “Writing Center Advisors” who help their respective clients brainstorm, improve their writing, and proofread papers. Writing Center Advisors are available not just for English-related work, but also History and now Science!
At the end of the day, the GA Writing Center (or GAWC) is another way GA strives to help its students excel in a very unique way.

To a lot of students across the country, senior year is all about the college process. No one escapes the tedious task of completing the Common App and numerous supplemental essays. Despite this daunting process, everybody looks forward to their senior year at Germantown Academy. Ever since Kindergarten, I’ve enjoyed watching the many senior traditions, ranging from leading the GA-PC Day pep rally to carrying out a crafty senior prank. Last Friday, the seniors ran a successful Crayola themed back-to-school dance (pictured above). Everyone came to the dance dressed up in a color that mimicked a Crayola crayon! With all of the senior traditions on the horizon, it’s our turn to write the next chapter in GA history and leave our mark on the school. Here’s to a great 2012-13 school year!
