Summer Programs Offer Personal Growth Opportunities

February 12, 2024

Huntington High School students use their summer vacations for what suits them best. Some like to travel while others pursue a mix of work and fun. Some use the time to engage in internships, visit colleges, relax and spend time with family. Many seek out summer programs on college campuses. Such experiences can help enlighten and clarify educational and career paths

Many such pre-college program summer experiences are available to Huntington High School students. Guidance counselors can help those looking for a particular program to fill a personal need.

Huntington students like to use the summer to invest in themselves in one way or another. They use the time for personal growth. Summer pre-college studies often help them on their journey.
