  6. 6. Have you consideredschooling away from home?Residential and Study Abroad Programs for Teens in High School. by Hilary Dobel igh school is a wonderful time to expand your horizons, but most students stick close to home. However, with an increasing number of educational programs offering residential and travel options, teens today can learn and grow by studying away from home before ever setting foot on a college campus. Boarding schools, semester schools, study abroad programs, and post-graduate years provide an exciting range of academic and geographic options, from exotic homestays in Vietnam to traditional boarding programs all across the United States. TRADITIONAL BOARDING SCHOOLS Students can attend traditional board- ing schools as early as fourth grade, though most start in sixth or ninth.

  10. 10. For Love of the Game by Hilary Dobel he benefits of participating in a sport are numerous. A report from Iowa State University shows that many student-athletes display superior time-management and orga- nizational skills, as well as a lower incidence of depressive symptoms. Women and girls who play sports demonstrate higher levels of self- esteem and well-being. Sports can offer teens a healthy attitude towards competition, self- discipline, and personal achievement, as well as a unique camaraderie with their teammates. As students get older and sports become more competitive, sometimes a day comes when a player’s skill set doesn’t match up with the expectations of a school’s team. It can be tough to realize that not everyone gets to be an all-star, but fortunately there are plenty of options to continue pursuing sports outside of school. Students don’t have to be starters on the varsity squad to keep playing the sports they love. There are so many opportunities to stay with their favorite sport in settings outside of school, that everyone can pursue some form of athletics. Holton-Arms offers fifteen different sports, many at the varsity, junior varsity, and middle school levels. See ad on page 2. Listing on page 17.8 | TEENLIFE METRO DC: SCHOOL YEAR 2011-2012

I would recommend them to ask as many questions as needed about the projects they are working on for clear direction and clarification. Plus students should write down all procedural steps and facts they learn in a notebook for reference purposes during and after their internship. How did this internship impact your career goals going into college and beyond? I used to think that I wanted to become a researcher. But after my internship I discovered that research involves a long process to get results. I think medical school might still be in the picture, but I know that I want to make a more direct impact on helping people. My internship helped me figure that out.
