Summer Activities for High School Students

posted in: Freshmen | 0

High school students (and their parents) are ALWAYS looking for ways to optimize college admission outcomes, and students who consistently pursue their unique interests help themselves in many more ways than just college admissions.

Each student is different…some are wild about learning languages while others prefer to dabble in entrepreneurial pursuits.   Some love to spend time growing vegetables in the backyard while others opt for summer internships or jobs.  Science & Engineering excites some kids while others live to sing and dance. During summer vacations, high school students have the rare opportunity to make unique choices to enhance their personal growth AND build their resume.  How do you want to spend your summer?   Would you deepen interests you already have, or explore something new?  Either way is fine.  What’s important is that you make a plan!

There are all sorts of programs available on college campuses across the country.    Some are hosted by the colleges themselves, while others are run by private organizations that simply use the college campus as a venue.  Each has different requirements and the costs vary wildly, so it’s important to plan ahead and do your homework.  A well-researched summer experience is essential.  Whatever it is you are interested in,  take  the summer to spend time with it.  That’s how you find your passion!
