Why Should I Do Summer School?
When summer comes around, usually all we want to do is sit back and relax by the pool. But taking a summer class can be both useful and fun. Here are four reasons why.
Summer school will make high school easier
You may be able to use a summer class to place out of one of your required high school classes. If not, at least you’ll be very knowledgeable about the subject and will be able to get a higher grade. You’ve gotten the hard part over with during the summer, which means less stress during school time.
You can list summer classes on your college applications
Taking classes over the summer shows colleges that you care about your education and are truly interested in learning more about certain subjects. There’s a space on the Common Application where you can fill in if you took any summer classes, and what grade you received. Doesn’t hurt to have something else to add to your resume!
You get to learn new things
Hopefully you can take a class in something you’re interested in. That way, you’ll be having fun, while being productive at the same time.
Make new friends
School is one of the easiest ways to make friends. Taking a summer class should be no different. Talk to your classmates. It’s always useful to have a study buddy.
