 – Summer Programs for High School Students –

Summer programs for high school students have become an issue of growing concern among parents and high school students who wish to grow. Summer programs are ideally designed to improve the students’ admission prospects for colleges.

Today, the majority of colleges offer at least one pre-college program inviting high school students to explore campus, visit with faculty, and even take courses during the summer months.

Owing to the growing number of applicants, an obviously increasing number of selective colleges are beginning to screen how applicants spend their summers during high school.

Some parents, in response to this trend, invest thousands of dollars on summer programs that should provide for an enriching experience but do little to distinguish their child from the rest of the applicant pool. Obviously, very little or nothing is achieved.

Most summer programs are just “cash traps” accepting any high school student able to pay the bill. Participation in these summer programs will be viewed by your prospective colleges as evidence of wealth, rather than evidence of any special ability.

However, there is a growing minority of selective summer programs that select high achieving high school students strictly on the basis of merit.

15 Best Summer Programs 2021
