Summers should be spent exploring your interests, getting to know yourself better, and contributing to your community. This can range from participating in sports to volunteering, from working a summer job to travel. Summer activities do not have to be organized activities - to spend your summer reading and doing independent research or working on the creative or performing arts is also fine. Just do not spend your entire summers watching videos, playing computer games, and whiling away your time on social media. A summer spent solely preparing for the ACT/SAT is not a summer well spent. If you wish, an organized summer program may suit your needs.
