Things to Do on Spring Break for High School Students

Spring break can be a great time for fun and relaxation for teens – or a chance to give back and learn something new. Check out these things to do on spring break for high school students.

Spring break is quickly approaching. If you’re like many parents of teens, you’re probably busy looking for things to do on spring break for high school students.

It’s important to do some research in advance, especially if you want to make the time off school an experience to remember. Spring break isn’t just about partying, after all, and teens can have a great time without heading off on a friends-only getaway.

Ready to start planning the fun? Consider our list of great things to do on spring break for high school students. Did we miss a fun idea? Tell us in the comments!

1. Staycation

Most high school students aren’t likely to go away to a tropical spring break destination – especially without their families – but that doesn’t mean your teen will be thrilled about staying home. Help her embrace it with a staycation to remember. Book a night or two at a nearby hotel, spend the day touring local landmarks and maybe even spring for a fun dinner out for your teen and her closest friends.

2. Give back

Spring break is a great time to expose your teen to volunteering. You could even look into vacation destinations that let teens give back while still enjoying some fun and sun. At Beaches Turks & Caicos, for example, a volunteer program is available where teens can earn community service hours by giving back to the local community during their trip, according to U.S. News and World Report.

3. Tour colleges

One of the best things to do on spring break for high school students is tour a college or university that your teen may be considering. Even if it’s a few in-state schools, make it a road trip with fun stops along the way.

4. Family vacay

If your high school student is already talking about spring break getaways with friends, it’s probably a good time to soak up every family-vacation opportunity you can get. College is right around the corner for your teen! Make these moments last.

5. Try something new

Has your teen always wanted to try rock climbing, ziplining or stand-up paddleboarding? It’s all available locally! See what bucket list items you can cross off your teen’s checklist by taking advantage of the week off school. It’ll be an adventure to remember – and it might even inspire a new hobby.
