Abbey Road in Boston

College Prep program is a great way for students to improve their SAT and ACT scores, work on their college admission essays and gain valuable pre-college experience.   [embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNbS1kn724g[/embed]  

Boston, Session 1

  For starters, the Abbey Roads College Prep program has been an amazing experience for me and I encourage any fellow hard-working student to seize this opportunity if they have the chance. When I first heard of this program I realized I had never really focused on the ACT. After I discovered exactly how important these standardized ...

Saying Goodbye to Leadership Academy

I can’t believe tonight is my last night with Abbey Road... I am going to miss everyone at my camp so much! I have made such amazing friendships with everyone that I can’t imagine leaving; it will be so hard to go back home and back to my normal routine. Not being able to say “I’m going to the quad", or "I want to go to my dorm” will ...

The Final Days in Palo Alto

Well, we leave tomorrow, and I'm going to miss everybody at Abbey Road! On Sunday, we went to the Great America theme park. This was one of my favorite excursions! We rode about a million roller coasters (and loved them all) and one water ride (and hated it). We were planning on doing the drop tower, but the group before us got stuck at the ...

The Academic Rigor Continues at Stanford University

The start of the new week meant a return to classes. Leadership Academy students spent six hours learning about international and nuclear diplomacy in preparation for their Model U.N. Summit coming up next week. They debated nuclear disarmament policies ranging from nuclear weapons are good for world peace to nuclear weapons shouldn’t ...

Exploring San Francisco

So far, the other Leadership Academy kids and I have been enjoying the three day break we've had from classes. For our last day this weekend, we went to San Francisco on Caltrain. Once we got there, we walked to Market and Powell Street to hop on a world-famous San Francisco cable car. That was my favorite experience! I chose to stand on the ...

NorCal Done Right: Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Francisco

Leadership Academy students got a break from their academic pursuits to visit the coastal town of Monterey. While the weather did not cooperate and relaxing on the beach was not an option, everyone had a good time wandering through the various local shops and purchasing gifts for friends and family. Following Monterey, the students toured ...

Classes and Day Trips at Leadership Academy

This week, we started our new class with Camille, who is teaching us about clean water. In the beginning of class, we watched a movie called Flow, which informed us about water systems around the world and the dangers that the world is facing concerning clean water supply. I found this class the most interesting because I want to be an ...

Seeing the Sites in Northern California

So far, the program is very interesting. I'm becoming close to all the people in the program as well as learning a lot from our professors. On Thursday, we had a seminar on clean water with Camille, another Ph.D. student at Stanford University. During the class, we watched a documentary on the privatization of water by multinational ...
