Sean Stevens, CEO at Immerse Education Shares His Top Tips for Students to Choose the Perfect Summer School This Year:

For ambitious students, summer school can be a launchpad for academic growth. It’s important to do your research and pick one that’s right for you. Find a summer school program that aligns with your goals, whether it's diving deeper into a favorite subject, exploring a potential college major, or pushing yourself with challenging new courses. You should also consider your learning style, and choose a format that works for you – do you thrive in a traditional classroom setting, or are you interested in a more hands-on experience? Location matters too – prestigious campuses, bustling cities, or even international programmes all offer unique experiences. And remember, summer school isn't just academics. Look for programmes with extracurricular activities to create a well-rounded learning experience.
