Will Summer Programs For High School Students Get Me Into College?

What is a Summer Program?

When we talk about summer programs in this article we are referring to educational summer camps; these are similar to a college experience and are usually located on a college campus. That’s not to say that traditional outdoor summer camps located in rural areas don’t provide learning opportunities for students! We are just specifically referring to summer programs located on college campuses that focus on helping students academically or enhance their extracurriculars while preparing the student for college.

Career Exploration for high School Students

Why you should start career exploration in high school

How many people have asked you what you want to be when you grow up? Or, what you want to major in? If your answer has been “I don’t know,” you are not alone! Many students go into college as undecided and take several years to declare their major. Even though this is extremely common, it does have its drawbacks: some students end up having to go to college for an extra semester or two because they didn’t declare a major soon enough. Also, it’s possible that you didn’t choose the college that would be best for your career choice. If you want to get the most out of your college experience high school is a great time to start exploring different options.
