This summer, I took my first community college course! At first, I didn’t think I would have the time to do this along with all my other summer activities and it seemed kind of intimidating, but I’m extremely thankful that I did. I will be reflecting my experience on it, giving some advice on taking community college courses during the summer, and explaining why it’s so beneficial (especially while still in high school).
Houston PREP is an intensive 6 week program at the University of Houston for high schoolers interested in STEM fields. It is an ongoing program that participants can continue to go to for 4 years and learn from college professors. I started attending this program at the end of 7th grade.
You’re probably wondering why the heck I would spend my whole summer with even more school related work. I mean why not take long walks on the beach or binge-watch?
