In addition to a solid GPA, students interested in attending college should also participate in extra-curricular and/or co-curricular activities. This helps with college and scholarship applications!
On campus - sports, school clubs, academic decathlon, etc.
Off campus - part-time jobs, clubs, youth groups, Boy/Girl Scouts, sports, etc.
Community service/Volunteer Work
Leadership positions within these activities (such as President, Secretary, Coordinator) are a great way for students to gain valuable experience and demonstrate additional, stronger skills to college representatives and scholarship review committees.
There is something for everyone! Participation in student organizations is very beneficial for our students.
