Amidst the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and worldwide calls for equality, people of all ages have had to adjust their plans for the year. There won’t be another summer like 2020. Thankfully, even while living through a new normal, high school students can make their long vacation more memorable with the first-of-its-kind Summer Virtual Learning program by Webster University.
This online program is specifically crafted to help high school seniors and recent graduates transition smoothly to college, earn college credits in advance and build a network of friends and mentors from around the world. Webster’s Summer Virtual Learning program is also open to continuing university students from universities across Ghana who wish to earn extra academic credits that may be transferable to their higher education institutions.
Running from June 29th to July 24th, participants in the program will take 2 foundational academic courses carefully designed and taught online by Webster Ghana faculty. They will also be exposed to life skills needed to excel as young adults through a number of ‘beyond the classroom’ activities, purposed to encourage well-roundedness.
“The truth is college success is hardly ever about the books alone. That’s why we included these ‘beyond the classroom’ activities. This largely includes online workshops and activities meant to groom soon-to-be freshmen so they can excel beyond their academics as well,” says the university’s Success Center counselor, Angela Baxter.
