"I took two different classes over two consecutive summers; Introduction to Global Studies and Topics in Global Studies. Both classes helped me get a jump start on my academics because they were both requirements for King's Global Distinction. Taking those courses helped me to better select my classes during the academic year and I felt more prepared."

"I was fortunate enough to take a 6 week Physics course the summer before my junior year which truly helped me get ahead academically. With an extremely small class size, and plenty of free time to focus on just one course, I was able to really thrive in what could have been a tough full-year physics course. Also, because I got to take physics over the summer, I was able to take AP Biology junior year instead of the required Physics course, and taking the AP really gave me an academic edge."
