4 Ways Online Summer School Answers Life’s Questions
Deciding how to spend the summer is exciting for students in high school! During a time when teens are facing a lot of big decisions in their lives, summer can breeze by so quickly. It’s critical for teens to take the time to ask the big questions: What do I want to be when I grow up? Am I ready to get my life on track? Which university should I attend? What is my life’s purpose? How am I going to pay for college? Am I ready to grow up?
Summer camp, volunteering, vacationing, summer school, applying for colleges, working a part-time job and having fun in the sun with friends are all great ways to explore the answers to these questions. But with so many options, it’s hard to know which direction to take in the few short weeks summer break has to offer.
As a parent, it can be challenging to guide a teen in answering these important questions while also allowing them freedom to relax and enjoy their youth. Providing the right environment, access to resources, and ability to explore their interests, gifts and talents are great ways parents can help teens to find their way. With credit recovery options, STEM career electives, and college prep courses, online summer school with Enlightium Christian Academy is a great resource parents can use to guide their teens as they are maturing into adulthood.
There are four ways that Enlightium Academy’s online Summer School can help:
1. Recovering High School Credits
Enlightium Christian Academy’s online summer school is a great way to get a struggling teen’s life back on track towards adulthood. For one reason or another, teens may find themselves a little behind at the end of the school year. Perhaps they got sick or suffered an injury during the regular school year. Maybe they’ve experienced a traumatic life event that created some set-backs that were out of their control. It is also possible that their learning style wasn’t a good fit for their previous learning environment and this has set them back academically. Whatever the challenge, it is good to understand and learn from the things of the past, and begin looking towards the future. There is nothing like a fresh start to get things rolling in the right direction. Enrolling in online summer school courses can make this transition less of an obstacle by providing 24/7 online access to the classroom and an opportunity for students to learn at their own pace with the learning style that works for them. Imagine getting caught up without the embarrassment of leaving the house. Enlightium Christian Academy makes it easy and accessible!
