Advice from UNHS Adviser, Debby Bartz:
Summertime is a chance to foster academic progress. Summer is the telescope of the next school year.
- When students look to the future, the sunny season is an opportunity for a head start in an Advanced Placement course or other courses to be studied in the next academic year.
- The dog days of summer are the perfect time to curl up with a new textbook under a shade tree.
- Summer learning gives students a chance to take a course for personal interest or hobbies in courses such as Discovering Music or Astronomy. UNHS courses can be completed in as little time as five weeks from the first submitted assignment. This still leaves time for a break or looking at the stars.
- Summer allows for a trimester of enrollments, and helps students accelerate toward their graduation goals.
- Daylight savings in June-August are the perfect time to repeat a course, close the gap, and earn a stronger grade.
- The picnic days help students to hang on to their academic compass and stay focused on school work with good habits and strong study skills.
- Being a life-long learner all year long demonstrates self-motivation, being industrious, an enthusiasm for learning, self-direction, and perseverance; a summative way to shine.
