McCarthy Writing Center

Mr. Frank McCarthy was a beloved faculty member at Austin Prep. He was instrumental in the implementation of process writing and peer editing in Austin’s curriculum. The McCarthy Writing Center, named in his memory, allows students to share, discuss and critique each other’s work on any type of written assignment with ease. Moved from the computer lab to a new, more collaborative space in 2018, the McCarthy Writing Center continues to offer support to all students throughout each step of the writing process. Student writing tutors are trained by English department faculty to not only improve student writing but to build better writers. Tutors are available to workshop peer essays during class, activity period, or before and after school.
