Summer Enrichment Opportunities

Students are encouraged to take advantage of the summer break to learn and do more.  Students might take a college class at a community college, participate in an internship,  get a part-time job, or volunteer at a local community agency.  All of these opportunities will help students mature,  gain skills, and improve their chances at being admitted to college,.

Below are a few examples or summer programs to which  students might apply.  Although some may have a hefty price tag, many are offered at low cost, offer scholarships, or are free to attend.  For more information or assistance in applying to a program, please reach out to your grade level counselor.
