Every parent has experienced certain degrees of anxiety and stress that their teens have exhibited during their high school years. Guidance counsellors and private educational consultants are advising a ‘tasting of college life’ to help prepare them for a better adjustment for future college and academic decisions.
Life’s transitions, whether social or academic, both in high school and college need a pre-tasting of experiences encountered in their educational quest.
A pre-college experience offered by the Cambridge College Programme is a valuable summer opportunity to prepare all ages of teens for their future transitions to college and the direction to take in terms of college studies. The Programme offers a taste of what college is all about. Many college freshmen enter college with no direction and undecided majors. This summer program offers college level classes in psychology, literature, science, history, and art, which gives teens an experience in areas of interest prior to entering college which alleviates the fear of the unknown when trying to make career choices.
A former student on the Programme, Monica Feliz Castillo, a pre-med student at Stanford University, in Palo Alto, CA, wrote, ‘Both my parents and I can attest that the Cambridge College Programme was a phenomenal way to gain my independence and mature into a responsible human being. I emphasized my participation in the Cambridge College Programme on several parts of my application to Stanford, so I can only assume that the Programme had something to do with my acceptance to my dream university.’
This is the 25th anniversary of the Programme at Cambridge University, Cambridge, England, a three week Programme from July 21 thru August 10th with an optional one week trip to Paris.
