Summer may be around the corner, but for many college bound students the June SAT or ACT is one of the last opportunities to reach their goal scores. These test dates are the last test offerings of the school year, so it’s important to know what to focus on in your test preparation between now and June.

Do you play the violin or clarinet? Sing? Are you a freestyle rapper? Like to compose songs? Dream of a career on Broadway? Summer break offers exciting opportunities for teens who are performing artists to further develop and enhance their skills and talents. Using time away from school to explore creative fields or delve more deeply into artistic areas of interest can make for an enjoyable and productive summer, and help you stand out when it comes time to apply to college.
College admissions want to see you exploring your interests and making an impact outside of the classroom, and that includes what you’re doing during your summer break. Planning a productive summer can help you better understand your college and career goals, and can help you stand out during the admissions process, too.
