College Bootcamp Helps Prepare High School Grads
Quantum U, an 8-day Summer Program For Incoming College Freshman, Helps Students Make The Transition From High School With New Learning And Life Skills
Joe Chapon, Vice President of Quantum Learning Network, announced that the company will hold an eight-day college boot camp in July at Colorado College in Colorado Springs for students entering college in the fall of 2008.
The program, entitled Quantum U, will accept 80 graduating high school seniors from around the country. It focuses on practical life and learning skills that students require to succeed in college, including techniques to manage their time, energy, and finances, as well as extensive training in college-level communication, presentation, writing, and reading skills.
According to Kevin Davis, a Quantum U facilitator, the program is unique because, “Quantum U helps students transition from the attitude and skills of a youth to the attitude and skills of an adult. They learn to go from the mindset of ‘things happen to me’ to ‘I make things happen for me’.”
Quantum U is an outgrowth of SuperCamp, a learning and life skills summer camp for middle school and high school students that launched in 1982 and has graduated over 48,000 students worldwide. An important aspect of both SuperCamp and Quantum U is that students learn how to learn, meaning they discover their own learning style and they are taught several practical learning techniques in the areas of note-taking, studying and memorization.
In making his announcement, Mr. Chapon indicated that Quantum U is a smart investment for parents. “College is not just an extension of high school. Instead it represents a new paradigm in school, learning and autonomy,” said Mr. Chapon. “And given the cost of a college education, sending a son or daughter to Quantum U for eight days to give them a head start on college is a very wise decision.”
Students attending Quantum U live on campus for the eight days. The program cost is $2,095 inclusive of tuition, room and board. More information is available online at www.Quantum-U.com, www.SuperCamp.com and by calling 800-285-3276 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
