Prepare for Academic Success
College demands are certainly different from high school. They can be fragmented, very intense, and sometimes overwhelming. Students may experience crowded lecture halls, unstructured schedules, and courses requiring hours of attention, study and homework. The pace is fast and a typical day, if there is such a thing, can include classes, library time, friends, work, and maybe even a workout.
Eight days at Quantum U helps students to succeed by providing the learning and life skills necessary to handle all the challenges of college life. Students learn to manage all areas of their independence—personal and academic—and take full advantage of the exciting opportunities of their college years.
