                       A World of Choices
There are hundreds of summer programs out there, and the sheer numbers of choices are often
intimidating for students. Here are descriptions of several types of programs to aid students in their search:
(Participation is also a great addition to college applications!)

   Academic Programs: Great for students who are bored by high school classes but intrigued by
    learning. It’s fun to live in a dorm and experience college life!

   Study Abroad and International Travel Programs: For students who are interested in learning
    another language or spending time among people of another culture

   Community Service Programs: The career center has a list of volunteer opportunities. Get
    involved and find something you have a passion for

   Outdoor Adventure and Travel Programs: Ideal for students who seek continual challenge while
    seeing the world

   Athletic Programs: For students who want to play a collegiate sport, hope to be recruited, or want
    to earn a scholarship

   Arts Programs: Great for students who want resources and training beyond that available in most
    high schools
