Soph/Fresh: Deciding which extracurriculars to pursue

posted in: Extracurricular Planning | 0

Do what you love with your free time – there is no magic formula for the “best” extracurriculars. Spend time participating in extracurricular activities that appeal to you. Your choices may be different than what your friends and peers have in mind, and that’s okay! The concept of “best” extracurriculars is subjective and it depends solely on what you love to do with your spare time. Try out different activities and pick the ones you’re excited to pursue.

Colleges are interested in enthusiastic & active students who will make their campus more vibrant. Don’t simply settle for a life of just academics. Get out and explore the different extracurricular activities that are available to you. Through active participation, you’re more likely to develop interests and an understanding of who you are and what you want to pursue. Colleges also tend to seek out students who are active members of both their community & campus and who can balance those activities with a solid academic load.


High school academics are grueling — doing what you love in your free time will make your life happier. Take a break from your schoolwork. Simply focusing on your academics can be exhausting and overwhelming. By engaging in extracurricular activities such as sports, music, theatre or volunteer endeavors, you’ll have the opportunity to get out and have some fun while socializing with others, learning new skills, and creating lasting memories.

We are privy to all sorts of extracurricular opportunities. There’s an endless array of extracurricular opportunities available for students to get involved in. If you can’t figure out what to do with your free time, we can evaluate what your interests are and help you figure it out.
