You’re really busy. Fall crashes into winter. Winter slams into a crazy hectic spring. And while you may think summer is the time to let things slide, wouldn’t you like more? Don’t you deserve more? Summer is a great time to take that summer program that could help you find a better career—maybe even a better life. And online programs make it easier than ever.

Here’s why you should take online classes in the summer:

Flexible Class Schedule

Online programs are super flexible and are a great fit to the less rigid days of summer. You still have to get all your work done, and meet deadlines, but you can do your work from wherever you are. Take a trip to the library or coffee shop, or download your assignments and bring them with you to the beach or pool.

Longer Days Give You Time for Work and Play

You may not actually have more hours in summer days, but it sure seems like it. Take advantage of those extra hours of sunlight by getting up an hour early and getting to work on your assignments. Slip away from that backyard barbeque for a half hour and you’ll have time for work—and play.

You’re More Focused in the Summer

Sure, it seemed crazy hard to pay attention in class at the end of the school year when you were a kid. But that was more likely because you couldn’t wait for spring to turn into summer so you could have time off. Now that you’re an adult, there is no season off. And studies have shown that it’s actually more difficult to concentrate in the winter! And that summer boosts your serotonin level, which is tied to improved memory.1

Summertime Is Usually Stress-Free

Sometimes it’s also super hard to concentrate when you have a thousand things going on at once. Work, family, and social ties can make your life pretty complicated. But the summer is a time to take a breath. And while you’re a little less stressed, you can take a look at what you want for your future. At Charter College, we have online programs in:
