Students need to stop melting away during the summer! What if there was a mandatory 2-week institute that all students needed to take part in both before their senior year of high school and their first year of college?
A summer melt transition program/college readiness program that reinvigorates students' passions to go to college with workshops about the college process, social aspects, academics, tips to succeeds, social events, etc.
This institute would include parents, counselors, professors, and basically most of the college campus as well as the high school campus for students to remain pumped and committed to college! It would most likely pair community colleges or state universities with their local high schools in their vicinity.
