Summer School Is An Advantage
“What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child,” once said George Bernard Shaw. Those who agree with this are supposedly eager to promote their child’s pursuit of knowledge.
Indeed, schools serve as good providers of knowledge, but once your child gets old enough to choose a future profession, supplementary sources of education such as high school summer programs are most preferable.
Summer school programs are meant to teach students during summer vacation, mostly during July and August. You may think of summer school as remedial classes for students who need to make up credits lost through absence or failure, but that’s only one side of it. There are various summer programs for high school students both to enroll in classes for getting extra credits for their GPA and also to experience college life, meet other highly motivated college students and orient themselves in their future profession.
Today, summer schools offer a variety of programs on academic subjects or developing skills, such as playing an instrument or sport. Personal development and leadership skills have recently become one of the major themes in suggested programs. Such a wide range of choices is meant to help your child make the final decision regarding his or her future profession. Moreover, participating in a summer school program will increase his or her chances of getting into a competitive college.
So, if summer school is what you want for your freshman, sophomore, junior or senior child then first find out what he or she aspires to learn, then choose the best type of summer school programs to provide the best experience and help with their career in future..
