Why enroll in our summer programs for teens?
Today’s educational system is becoming increasingly competitive for students, as educational institutions are being required to increase their standards. This is causing a stress epidemic amongst students. They must learn as much as they can, and learn it effectively. Now more than ever social and emotional learning plays a vital role in student success. It is obvious that students are under an immense amount of pressure. Unfortunately, in school there is no SEL class and students are forced to “deal” with everything that is thrown at them and somehow manage it all.
Student Futures has the best college prep summer program for 13-19 year olds! These three programs were designed with middle school and high school students’ social emotional learning(SEL) skills in mind. Each program’s activities are designed using CASEL’s core SEL competencies. These activities can not only help students mentally prepare for any major test but also help them face various challenges may otherwise distract them from academic pursuits.
Thank goodness for summer! It’s the best time to get ahead of the game.
