Firstly, we have our very own database of some of our favorite programs compiled in the Omnibus.
Secondly, Michael Maki did a wonderful job creating pathways for different careers-over 3 dozen-offering up several suggestions for each summer from end of grade 8 to end of junior year. Download the PDF here.
Finally, we have some summer touring programs:
College-visits - COLLEGE VISITS offers the college bound student a first-hand look at colleges and universities throughout the United States. Because of our experience in working with a multitude of higher education institutions, we are able to obtain meetings with admissions representatives, student led tours, and campus housing. This helps to take the hassle and worry away from the student and parents in organizing a family visit. COLLEGE VISITS tours cover all aspects of college life. We tour small, medium and large schools, rural and urban, and public and private schools. Our tours cover almost every region of the U.S., so if there is a particular school or region you are interested in, chances are COLLEGE VISITS goes there.
TS College tours - TS College Tours was established to better serve students attending high schools outside the United States who wish to attend college or university in the US or Canada. Unlike other college tour companies, at TS College Tours we focus on the specific and unique needs while acknowledging the different backgrounds and requirements of international students.
Each tour has been carefully planned with students attending overseas schools in mind and each tour is led by counselors with experience in international school settings.
Their services include:
- Pre-Scheduled Campus Tours – find out more here
