College Planning Workshop (CPW)

Offered in Spring to Juniors

and Summer to rising Seniors only

This overview class guides students in reflecting on themselves as students and identifying goals and plans for college. Emphasis is placed on organizing the college search and application process.

  • Topics include: individual academic profile, finding a college match, choosing a major, understanding college systems, application tips and tricks, managing deadlines, applying for financial aid, and letters of recommendation.
  • Students will develop and receive personalized feedback on a list of prospective colleges to which they will apply in the fall.

College Essay Workshop (CEW)

Offered in Fall to Seniors only

and Summer to rising Seniors

This workshop allows students to brainstorm, write, and refine a personal statement essay required for UC or private college applications. Students will have several opportunities to work one-on-one with instructors and revise their drafts:

  • Review essay prompts; read sample essays; review essay tips and tricks; and write and revise a college application essay.
  • Students will draft a college application essay, receive personalized feedback, and use the feedback to revise and improve the essay. 

These courses are in high demand. All students who submit the online form by the end of business day on April 3 will have an equal opportunity to be placed in their first choice course location and time. Although class size is limited, most students who register before the deadline will get a seat in a class.

Please refrain from calling FUHSD or the City of Cupertino with questions about lottery placement until you have received notification (April 12).  Registration requests received after the deadline will be placed on a waitlist and notified by email if/when space becomes available.

Please contact your student’s Guidance Counselor for more information about the courses. For questions about the registration process, please contact Cupertino Recreation & Community Services at (408) 777-3120.
