Full course description

Location: Salisbury University Campus
This bootcamp is free and is intended for High School Juniors.
The junior year is very demanding for high school students. This is an extremely busy time when students must be prepared to balance enjoying their high school experience while beginning to prepare for the transition to either college or the workplace after graduation.
To be successful, the student should set clear goals and identify ways to achieve those goals. They have to decide if they are going to attend college, enter the workforce or both.
The Salisbury University College and Career Readiness Bootcamp for high school juniors will provide an opportunity for the student to engage in online and face-to-face opportunities to participate in activities that will help them navigate life on a college campus or in the workplace.
This one-week intensive course provides enrichment activities to prepare high school seniors with the skills they need to smoothly transition to go to college or enter the workplace after they graduate from high school. The students develop skills in choosing a career path, financial literacy, preparing for college success, goal setting, time management, study skills, public speaking, test taking, critical thinking, problem-solving, information literacy, college reading and writing, and other topics.
The College and Career Readiness Bootcamp, Summer 2022, will be taught by instructors that will provide guidance, support and feedback for the students. Juniors that complete the course will receive a digital badge that will be added to their professional profile to show their competency in the course areas.
