Typical College Now Day
Thinking about signing up for College Now? Here’s how participation might affect your school day.
Extra class time
Some College Now activities take place during school hours, but most occur before or after school. On rarer occasions, classes may even meet on Saturdays. Students who take a course at a college will also need to add in travel time.
Extra work outside of class
College Now participants will need to do additional reading assignments, paper writing, etc. For many students, managing this increased workload can prove difficult. Fortunately, there are ways parents can support CN students as they rise to meet this challenge.
CN classes or activities often stress the importance of hands-on experience. Sometimes this means leaving the high school or college campus to conduct an experiment in a chemistry lab, attend a play, or hear an author read from her latest book.
