Writing & Research Studio

The Learning Commons is proud to house the Writing/Research Studio which is located on the 2nd level of the Sabbagh Library. Our experienced team offers assistance to Middle School and Academy students.


Students are encouraged to reach their full potential as young writers and researchers. Various types of writing are covered in our studio which students are expected to master throughout Middle and High School including but not limited to: academic essays, research papers, reflections, UCAS personal statements, Common App college essays, motivation letters, CVs as well as various kinds of creative writing (poetry, drama, fiction, film scripts). 

We firmly believe that writing is a form of self-exploration, self-expression and self-definition, further empowering students to become architects of their own learning.
