Summer Plans for Juniors

Seven great, unusual things to do this summer

All Vox students receive recommendations on summer activities that nurture their interests and abilities. At application time, colleges will look to your summers to see how you’ve invested yourself in your true interests. Now is the time to be thinking about and applying for academic, music, language, leadership, research and other enriching summer activities. Let us know your interests, and we can help. Here are a few you might not have heard about:

• Great Books Summer Program

Programs in Business and Management, International Relations, Medicine, and History.
