MatchPoint Workshop: Planning for Summer 2018

For many of today’s college-bound high school students, the summer is no longer nine weeks of total relaxation, but rather an opportunity to spend time actively working, learning new skills, or diving deeper into an area (or areas) of interest.

We encourage students to consider what they enjoy, what areas they could improve in, and what their goals for the future are in order to decide what to do over the summer. We don’t encourage any student to spend their summer doing something that they don’t enjoy, so don’t fill summer with activities just because you think they will look good on an application. 

At this workshop for students and for parents, we will discuss:

* Defining the goals for this summer 

* Determining the impact your summer options might have

* Researching your options for summer activities with trusted online resources

* Evaluating your options for summer activities

The workshop will break out into two tracks - one for students, the other for parents. Space is limited.
