15 Ways to Spend Summer 2016

February 25, 2016

 

 

 
Many colleges offer special summer programs on their campuses for high school students.  These programs allow students to explore a topic or activity of interest and experience life on a college campus. 
 
College admissions officers look favorably on students who engage in
meaningful activities outside of the classroom, and pre-college programs offer a diverse selection of experiences.  While it’s always a good idea to take advantage of summer break to explore and deepen interests, it’s particularly important that students plan to make the summer between junior and senior year a productive one. 
 
Summer enrichment programs vary by subject, length, and price.  (Some of them even offer financial aid, so check it out.) What follows are a few that have captured our imagination; they are just the tip of the iceberg.
