What are the benefits of taking summer courses?
Studies show that over the summer, students experience a drop in their academic learning, something that is known as the summer slide. Most students spend very little time engaging in activities that keep their brains active and growing. Summer courses are an ideal way to maintain what students learned throughout the school year, and even get ahead for the upcoming school year. And let’s face it, students face a lot of pressure to take on AP classes, extracurriculars, and to have solid grades. Summer is a great time to help alleviate some of that stress. Don’t let your student’s summer go to waste!
