We say this all the time: the earlier you start on college prep the better. But how early is early? The reality is that colleges look at everything from 9th grade on – meaning students need to show up to day one of high school ready to go.
Executive functioning is our brain’s management system, consisting of a group of skills that allow us to set goals, plan ahead, and get things done. These skills are crucial, not only in the context of academics but also in our everyday lives. These skills are learnable and can be improved with consistent practice, much like a runner training for a race, and summer can be a great time to build those skills and set up a successful school year in the fall.
