While most high-school students spend a lot of time thinking about their college major and potential careers, to those thinking about pursuing advanced degrees, it may seem like an even bigger decision.

5 Tips to Summer Success

Posted by Ezra Solway on Apr 9, 2019 12:32:00 PM

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.

Posted by Steve Robertson on Apr 2, 2019 4:00:29 PM

Q: What do parents need to know about the Social Media Epidemic and what can they do to help their middle school age (10-13) Gen Zers navigate this new social landscape?

  •  A: We are in the midst of a Social Media Epidemic and it is dramatically influencing the Gen Zers (born 1996-2010) that are living in our homes and has changed the social landscape.
Generation Z:
  • Get their info from YouTube or from their peers versus mentors or parents
  • Communicate digitally 35% of the time.
  • According to a  new study, today’s teens care much less about driving, scoring a fake ID, or dating than their 1990’s counterparts.
  • They prefer to stay home, hang out and scroll through social media.

Educational Summer Camps and How the Krinsky Classroom Experience Makes Learning Fun

Posted by Brenda Ronan on Mar 20, 2019 12:49:00 PM

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.

A lot of people are looking for advice on how a summer program can make their college application more competitive – but let’s back up a minute first.
