Many parents tell their children if they do not pass a class or behave better they will be forced to go to summer school. As a child your summer’s are for playing outside with friends, family vacations and just being a kid.
It is seen more as a punishment than as getting ahead of your peers, or working on something that you struggle with.
In college, summer school is seen as an opportunity. A chance to get into a class that you missed out on previously that school year. Or to repeat a class you didn’t do so well on.
Summer school offers a different environment compared to the traditional school year. The classes are smaller and the professor has more time to focus on what the class is having a difficult time on.
Another benefit of taking a class during the summer months, is less distraction. Only taking one course can help a student focus on that particular subject. They do no have to worry about juggling other classes.
Summer school is a great way to keep yourself from getting lazy. It is not as full throtle as the typical school semesters are but it does prevent one from forgoing their study habits.
Give it a try.
