The staff is completely committed to making your experience the absolute best it can be. I highly recommend this program; it is truly amazing!
By the second day we had each other laughing hysterically on our way back from the dining hall! I couldn’t believe how quickly we all became friends.
My daughter thoroughly enjoyed her week at George Washington University! It was a wonderful experience.
Blueprint was the best part of my summer. It gave me a taste of college and helped me discover the type of college I would like to attend. I would not pass up a chance to do this program.
“I’ve learned more about writing in this last week than I’ve learned through out my whole 3 years of high school.”
“Blueprint was an awesome program! The staff is wicked friendly, you get plenty freedom (as long as you are responsible), and the people I met are AMAZING!!!”
