Summer Power-up for High School Students

Summer is almost here, which means it’s time for high school students to take their college planning to the next level! To make sure that students are ready to seize the opportunity and can find a school that will help them pursue their passion we’re launching a new part of our college-planning package: Summer Power-Up.

Summer College Prep Programs with Class 101

Students will ignite their path to college with dedicated support and guidance from our Class 101 college advisors. All students will receive one-on-one help from college planning experts, access to personalized resources, and much, much more. 

What Our Summer Program for High School Students Covers

Rising seniors this summer can expect support on:

  • – College Lists: Students will work with their college advisor to develop a list of top ten colleges and universities that match their interests;
  • – Campus Visits: Students will learn what to look for when visiting colleges;
  • – Resume: Students will develop a resume that includes their activities, honors, and work experience;
  • – Teacher Recommendations: Students will receive guidance on how to ask 1–2 teachers for a letter of recommendation
  • – Test Prep: Students will discuss and execute a plan for prep so they can become a better test taker; and
  • – College Essay: Students will receive detailed feedback on their college essays so they can let their personality shine through.

But that’s not all! In addition to these offerings for rising seniors, students entering their freshman through junior year can participate too. As part of the Class 101 Summer Power-Up, these students can learn what they need to apply to college and get a head start on their college planning process, including:

  • – Year in Review: Students will sit down with their Class 101 college advisor to review the previous school year and how they can achieve more;
  • – Summer Goals: Students will develop a list of things to accomplish over their summer break;
  • – College List: Students will create or revisit a list of top ten colleges and universities;
  • – Campus Visits: Students will be guided through how to make the most of two college visits;
  • – Exploring Careers and Majors: Students will receive recommendations on how they can take part in a summer camp, shadow a job, or talk to someone in their field of interest; and
  • – Getting Involved: Students will find at least one volunteer opportunity for their resume.

The Advantage of Summer Prep Programs

The opportunity lets students make the most of their summer so they don’t have to stress through the rest of the year. Without the added stress of responsibilities at school, students can remain focused on long-term goals and dedicate themselves to practice tests, research, and resumes without having to cram all this work into evenings or give up the fun they need to enjoy themselves.

Ready to take your college journey to the next level? This is just one benefit of being a Class 101 student. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of our Summer Power-Up which kicks off in May and runs through August 1st.
