Gretchen and Megan each share their top 5 lists of things students should do over the summer to grow as people, and also get themselves ready for college.
Megan’s list includes:
- Build independence
- Travel, and
Gretchen’s list includes:
- Learn a practical skill,
- Get an internship,
- Do something hard, scary, challenging, or surprising,
- Plan part or all of a family vacation,
- Read both fiction and nonfiction
Although their lists were slightly different, one common element is that students should be STRATEGIC about how their summer activities help set them up to be thriving adults with amazing lives.
