Sophomores & Freshmen: New Years Resolution for 2016

The New Year is a great time for 9th & 10th graders to begin to dabble in a new hobby or extracurricular activity, allowing a chance to develop interests more fully as you enter 11th grade. Ask at your high school about on-campus options (clubs? teams? competitions? volunteer positions?) or seek out community opportunities to explore something brand new……you may just discover something you love!

Call us at (818) 207-0263 to discuss how we can help you get involved with a new, exciting extracurricular activity.

You want to have a cohesive high school record demonstrating interest and depth in a few specific activities. Starting early in high school with exploration you can find what you truly love & show admission reps your commitment to a life of purpose, now and in the future. Be consistent with your involvement in a few of your favorite activities as time progresses. Starting early gives you enough time to try out different pastimes and hone in on your favorite ones by the time junior year rolls around.

You will have more opportunities to show initiative and take on leadership roles if you love what you do. Through commitment and growth, you’ll be able to take on formal or informal leadership roles in your extracurricular activities. Whether you’re involved in sports, volunteer organizations, jobs, competitions or high school clubs— be enthusiastic, hone your talents, take initiative and leave a mark.

We brainstorm with students to help them discover activities they may never have considered. For some, narrowing down their list of extracurricular activities may be challenging. Other students have trouble coming up with any hobbies at all. In either case, we’re here to help you determine which activities best match your personality and interests and open your eyes to new possibilities.

We help connect our students to mentors and unique experiences. By utilizing our vast network, we can help you find something to enjoy. Colleges want to know they are admitting students who will “do things” on their campus, so get busy in 2016 and show them what you can do!
