    Should I Attend Summer School?

    Wondering whether to take summer school? During the summer, you can enroll in school to get ahead in your credits or to get to a higher level of education with AP status. Depending on your goals and your level of units, you may want to highly consider going in order to get six to eight weeks of accelerated education. Some people want to get out of junior college early, for example, so they take extra classes. It’s not a guarantee that you will get out of junior college in two years, so people sometimes take above the 12- to 15-unit full-time enrollment.

      

    The Benefits of Summer School

    For one thing, you can get school done—and graduate—quicker than the average student. Another reason to take summer school is to rack up some class units. So if, for example, you have a job during the regular school semester, you can take fewer units—because you’ve already taken some during summer school—and focus more on homework and your work schedule. If you pile it on yourself to have full credits plus work, it can be tough—it’s a lot if you’re a full-time employee and a student. Some people can only manage part-time school and part-time work; it really depends on the person’s capabilities.

    If you have the luxury of not having to work while you’re in school, then your parents may be supporting you and you may not have to do summer or winter classes. On the other side of the coin, summer school may be costly for some students and your parents may be willing to pay for you.

    Whatever the case, summer school requires a sacrifice to get ahead in school credits.

      

    The Downside of Summer School

    The downside of taking summer school is that with accelerated learning, it may be too advanced or too much information. If you feel you can’t handle the fast-paced education, then maybe wait and do normal school during the semester. Each person varies and everyone has different learning speeds and workloads, so you have to decide what’s right for you.

      

    Assess Your Personal Situation

    Pray and ask God about what you should do and make sure to use your time wisely. Many people work full time, even in the summer season, so if you want to be advanced or an overachiever, go for it! On the flip side, if you are overloaded, have no time for God or family, and are exhausted with work and school as it is, then you might want to balance your time and wait until the fall semester to resume courses. Everyone is different, so the situation varies for each student. Get some counseling about it if you need it.
