Plan out summer of a High Schooler

An increasing number of selective colleges are beginning to scrutinize how applicants spend their summers during high school.

Several of these programs are offered for free or at relatively low costs and will prove an impressive addition to your college application. We’d discuss the most noted STEM, Business, and Pre Med track options with Summer programs, work, NGOs, volunteer, and related extracurricular activities.

    My daughter is in 9th grade and wanted to know some opportunities intern
    Our visa is H4 so what kind of opportunity she could have

    1. Your daughter would qualify for all unpaid internships or paid pre collegiate summer programs like COSMOS that held at universities.
