Summer Opportunities

Summer Programs and Internships

Some thoughts before you begin...College representatives consistently advise us that, as far as college admissions go, summer programs are only “worth” what they are worth to the individual participant.  In other words, only YOU determine value. Colleges are looking for students who use summers to push themselves out of their comfort zones and pursue genuine interests. There are many productive things a student can do with a summer break—there is value in travel, reading for pleasure, getting a job, volunteering, taking up a new hobby, etc. Focus in on something that is really important or interesting to you.


Many summer programs are offered by for-profit companies and can be quite expensive. While many of these programs are well run and valuable, please carefully research a company before you sign up. Not all summer programs that are held at universities are run by the university; many companies merely lease space from the university.


Please note these programs are not endorsed by Homestead, we only provide the information. Students and parents should investigate thoroughly prior to applying or attending.  Mrs. Lund keeps a binder of Summer Programs/Jobs in the College & Career Center.
