             Please let me know if you run into a link that no longer works. It is a big job.
                               We think all should be working now.

*Reminder: If you are planning to get high school credit for any of these experiences that offer
legitimate accreditation, please see your Counselor for an Equivalency Form Agreement
before you enroll in the class.
     If you are ambitious and want an educationally enriched experience, try one of these.
     If you have failed a class and want to make something up, try one of the summer
     If you have to go away for the summer and live with another parent, there can be a
        summer school at the local accredited high school. Have your parent inquire.
     Information about these may also be available in the Library with the College
     Contact colleges and schools if no contact info has been given.
     Contact any college and inquire as to a summer high school experience. Let the
        Counseling Office know if you find ones that are not on this list.
     Many specialized experiences are intended for sophomores going in to their junior year,
        or juniors going to be seniors but not limited to that. Read/investigate carefully!

Global Impact was inspired by the international programs of the Seattle Community Colleges, which
serve students from more than 100 countries around the world; by the region’s leadership in health
care; and by the health care education focus of the colleges, whose combined programs comprise the
largest health care education provider in the region. “These elements provide the foundation for
taking our education programs to the next level of development and significance,” according to Global
Impact program administrator Dr. Andrea Insley, district-wide coordinator of International Programs.

The program offers an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people in developing countries,
and in return, Insley said, “participants find themselves changed by the experience.”

Northwest School Summer Camp “Campbassador Program” for high school students to gain
valuable leadership skills. Campbassadors are the official student leaders of the Summer Camp,
enthusiastically providing outreach to all campers in fun and innovative ways. Campbassadors will
take part in a leadership class each morning where they will develop and implement group activities
for the camp. Participants will then lead mid-day meetings (daily activity involving all campers,
approximately 80-150 students).
The camp takes place at the Northwest School from July 2 – August 10. Campbassadors will need to
be available for this entire time as well as a few days before camp for orientation (tentatively
scheduled for June 27-29). Campbassadors do not receive compensation, but can take a camp class
of their choice during the afternoon sessions. And of course, Campbassadors will gain invaluable
leadership skills and have the opportunity to meet students from around the globe.
