Before you ask, this is NOT a girl help post!!
It has to do with education.
OK, here is my problem.
My counselor at my high school taled to me today about my credits and performance in high school. Right now I am a junior. He tells me that he really wants me to graduate early because I've fulfilled my graduation requirements with the exception of government classes, this is great because if I do graduate early I'll go into college at the age of 17, that's a huge jump start on a career and a future.
However, there is a problem. In order to graduate early I have to take a government class over the summer, either through correspondence or Summer School. Now, I had planned on spending my summer working as a camp counselor in Island Park, Idaho, which is a wilderness area just outside of Yellowstone. I would be spending my summer helping kids, hiking, camping, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, and generally enjoying the outdoors, and getting paid to do it.
I could do this, or sit inside a classroom all summer long, studying government, while it's 90 degrees outside and all my freinds are in camp at Island Park.
OR, I could take correspondence, have my lessons mailed to me at camp and work on them there, the only problem with this is that I'd have to do schoolwork while trying to do my job as a camp counselor at the same time. So, what do you think is the best thing to do. I really would love to graduate early, I really would, and to me correspondence seems to be the best idea.
But what do you think? Any advise is greatly appreciated. I dont want to blow my summer, I want to have fun, but I also want to graduate early. Somewhere I need to make a sacrifice. Do you think I should go with correspondence?
Again, advise is greatly appreciated, and furthermore, has anyone here ever taken correspondence, what is it like and how hard is it to sdo well on schoolwork that is mailed to you?
Thanks for any help,
