4 Things That

SET SUMMER PROGRAMS APART BY STEPHANIE SZITANYI ummer academic programs are one of the best ways for high school teens to make their summer more productive, but not all students feel like a summer study is worth their time, especially after putting so much work into their previous school year. However, summer programs differ significantly from both the regular school year and traditional after school programs, and they’re worth considering for any student. Here’s 4 things that set summer programs apart!

1. AN OPPORTUNITY TO FIND YOUR PASSION A summer program may help you choose a major or even choose a college, as many programs require you to choose one specialized topic to study while you’re enrolled. Doing so will help you decide whether you have a true love for that field and whether you can see yourself studying it for a lengthier period of time. They can also help you realize that what you thought was an interest may not actually be for you. Once you’ve found something you’re passionate about, summer programs can help you decide which colleges to apply to, especially if you attend multiple programs while still in high school. In fact, many college-bound students end up at the same university where they completed a summer program!

2. A GLIMPSE OF YOUR POTENTIAL CAREER Summer Programs often give students direct access to both academic and industry experts in their chosen area of interest – think scholars, researchers, and organizational leaders. This can be through the actual courses you take or through a lecture series, career workshop, or site visit to a company in the industry. Experts you meet could help you choose a college or a major, land an internship,

or even write a letter of recommendation for your college applications down the line. Always be sure to keep in touch with both professors and industry contacts you met during your summer program because you never know what opportunities may come of it.

3. A WAY TO EARN COLLEGE CREDIT Summer academic programs can be a great way to get a head-start on earning credits towards your college degree, sometimes even allowing you to complete your degree quicker and keep more money in your pocket. If not explicitly mentioned in the marketing materials, be sure to ask a program manager whether there are any limits on transferring credits earned from your chosen summer academic program to outside universities.

4. SOMETHING EXTRA ON THE RESUME If you can, pick a summer program that you find enjoyable that also gets you out of your comfort zone! Admissions officers are interested in candidates with strong character and a sense of direction. They’re also interested in understanding how a candidate deals with adversity when it comes their way. While attending a summer academic program looks good on any college admissions application, a well-crafted personal essay that demonstrates how the experience made you a more well-rounded person will be of particular interest to any admissions counselor, so keep that in mind when making your decision!

BOTTOM LINE: Summer programs provide high school students a host of benefits that the general school year does not. Whether it’s developing a new skill, engaging in an experiential project, or gaining hands-on knowledge from industry experts, summer programs can be a wonderful experience for high school teens. 2022 SUMMER & GAP GUIDE

n the past, summer programs might’ve involved your parents shipping you off to a camp for three months of camping, outdoor activities and fun. And while experiences like that are still widely available to teens, many students today can choose programs that are more focused on a particular interest. Many such programs last only a week or two but can focus on interests such as sports, business, the arts, and STEM careers. And these camps are more than fun times away from home; they also give students a chance to explore what they love. 4 | 2022 SUMMER & GAP GUIDE

Academic summer programs in particular give students a preview of their potential major within the college experience and often provide the opportunity to earn some college credit at the same time. It doesn’t hurt either that, when it comes time to apply for college, the summer math or science program will look good on that college application as well. However, with so many summer programs out there, how do you narrow it down to one (or two or three) that are perfect for you? Well, we recommend following these three steps!

1. EXPLORE THE DIFFERENT OPTIONS There are so many programs to choose from: local, national and international programs in all kinds of different academic fields. Understanding all the different options and opportunities available is key to finding a program that’s right for you or your teen. A great place to start is on, where you can filter and search by many of these different parameters. You can also search on a specific college website for pre-college summer programs, as many colleges offer STEM programs during the summer to high school students. These programs usually require an extensive application process, so start early if you’re interested in applying. Some programs can also be quite pricey; but the education and hands-on experience your student receives can also be priceless. Additionally, many of the college-based programs offer scholarships or other financial aid.

2. EVALUATE THE PROGRAMS Before deciding on a summer program, it’s important to evaluate the program itself. Ask yourself these questions before choosing a program: • Is the classroom or facility safe for all students? • Do the teachers and staff have the proper training for their duties? • Are students engaged in project-based learning?

• Are the activities engaging, interesting and age-appropriate? • Does the instructor give a compelling presentation? • Are students given time to reflect on activities? • Are students allowed to explore and be wrong?

3. KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT! Once you’ve dedicated on a program, learn everything you can about it before leaving, so you can ensure you have the best experience possible. Many programs give students the opportunity to live and study on a college campus while working on their studies. Are you or your teen prepared for such an experience? Also,many of these programs consist of much more than just classes and lectures. Are you prepared for the full range of activities you’ll encounter? If not, that’s okay, but be sure to familiarize yourself with what’s coming so as not to be surprised or overwhelmed! One week of knowledge saves a lot of time and effort in the future when making choices about careers and colleges. Students who are not sure what they want to major in college, and even what colleges they are interested in should consider a summer program, as it’s a great way to be exposed to both!
