The Importance of Summer Preparation

The summer before high school is an opportunity for students to build skills, establish routines, and gain confidence. Here's how you can help your child make the most of this critical time:

  • Strengthen academic foundations: Use the summer leading up to high school to reinforce your child's understanding of core subjects such as math, science, and English. Consider reviewing previous material, enrolling in online courses, and encouraging your child to read books that are likely to appear in their high school curriculum.
  • Develop effective study habits: Effective study habits are critical for high school success. Help your child establish these habits early by creating a study schedule and working on organizational skills.
  • Cultivate extracurricular interests: Extracurricular activities play a significant role in high school life, contributing to a well-rounded education and college applications. Encourage your child to explore their interests by signing up for summer camps and workshops, volunteering, and pursuing their hobbies. Utilize Discover+ to find opportunities that fit
