Here is a radical idea: what if summer could be about relaxing, having fun with new friends while also learning new applicable skills to use in the real world? These days it seems impossible to reconcile the two. It can be stressful for students, especially those approaching prospects of college, to focus on their future when they are so caught up with homework, social life and all of the challenges of growing up. It’s tempting to just stay in the moment and neglect the bigger picture. It’s never too late, however, to map out a course of action for the future so that your goals (which may seem far off and distant now) seem practical and easy to accomplish. Here are a few of our handy tips to stay ahead and avoid falling behind this summer.

What do you think of when it comes to summer? When you close your eyes and think back to your perfect summer experience, what comes to mind? Is it spending all day in the woods at a traditional camp? Is it hanging out at home with friends with no commitments or schedules? Or maybe it’s spending the whole day inside a classroom. Our guess is it’s not the last option. People don’t typically think of a classroom when they think of summer, but at JKCP we couldn’t disagree more! At JKCP we know a classroom can be fun, engaging and also so much more than what you would typically experience in a “traditional” classroom.
