The Best High School Extracurriculars

passion-768x512-200x200There is no one right answer to the extracurricular question. A paid job, an internship, volunteer work, a project, it’s all good.

Selective schools, however, typically like to see students who are passionate about something rather than jumping around and doing a bunch of different things on a superficial level.

A teenager who belongs to four or five clubs won’t impress colleges as much as an someone who focuses on one or two passions in a meaningful way. And that makes perfect sense.

Demonstrating a Passion

Here is an example of what I’m talking about…

My daughter Caitlin loved to play soccer (and still does). She was on a club soccer team throughout her teenage years and was also on her high school team.

Caitlin went further, however, to demonstrate her passion for soccer. For two seasons, she coached a little girls’ soccer team. And she also was a soccer referee for her club soccer league.

She played soccer because she loves the sport. She was a referee because she wanted the money.

Her only cynical move was volunteering to coach a team of five-year-old girls. We agreed that would look good on her college application. She ended up, however, loving the experience. One reason why she did was because it tied into her soccer passion.

While she was looking at colleges, she had a lot of Division III coaches interested in her and she ultimately landed at Juniata College where she was a starter on the varsity team every season except the year she spent at the University of Barcelona.

Soccer remains her passion and she plays in an adult league back home in San Diego.

Another extracurricular example

Growing up Caitlin also loved arts and crafts (still does) and one thing she intentionally did to show schools this interest was through volunteering.

She volunteered at an assisted living center where she gathered up photos from the facility’s events and designed scrapbooks. She also decorated the bulletin boards. And she created a window box for an elderly resident who wanted to display the mementos from his late wife’s nursing career that started during World War II.

Caitlin, who is the marketing director of a toy company, remains just as passionate today about arts and crafts and has her own website – DIY with Caitlin.

Bottom Line:

When exploring activities during your teenager years, do what you love. And think outside the box! That’s how you’ll find the best extracurricular activities for you!

Would you like to study in the US? Are you a good student? apply to the CCC

CCC-Flyer-2018 (1)

What is the EducationUSA Competitive College Club (CCC)?

The EducationUSA Competitive College Club assists the best and the brightest students to have an improved chance at admissions to a U.S. college or university. The EducationUSA CCC is open to all students residing in Spain of any nationality, ethnicity, and economic background. Appreciation of diversity is a fundamental value at U.S. higher education institutions, and integration starts at home.

 Who can join?

Participation is open to students in 1º y 2º de Bachillerato who are in the top 10% of their class. The only other requirement is commitment. Students must attend all meetings, held bi-monthly during the school year and weekly during the summer. Absences must be approved by the Adviser. Students sign a contract detailing their responsibilities and confirming they have understood them. Credit is awarded for meeting attendance and task completion. You must accrue enough credits to put “EducationUSA CCC Member” on your application for admission. Depending on age of applicant, English language ability may be a decisive factor.

What do participants do?

The EducationUSA CCC involves a number of activities, including weekly study groups, community service activities, reading assignments and lectures.  From the beginning, students prepare for the SAT tests as these provide a U.S. college or university with a quantitative measure to back up the student’s school grades.

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees that EducationUSA CCC students will be accepted to U.S. colleges or universities or that they will be awarded scholarships from US universities, but this intensive group advising guarantees the best possible chance. The EducationUSA Adviser will also work with the student to have an alternative plan in the event that the application process is not successful.

Where will the meetings be held?

EducationUSA in Spain is pleased to count on the participation of the International Institute in this joint initiative to help the Madrid-area secondary school student population better prepare for US study. Meetings will be held at the International Institute on c/ Miguel Ángel, 8, 28010, Madrid. There is also an online group that meets virtually at the same time as the regular meeting.

What does it cost to join the program?

Membership and participation in the program is free.

How do I become a member?

You can apply to be a member by filling out this registration form: http://bit.ly/EdUSA-CCC-2018 and sending your transcripts (expediente academic) for 3º y 4º de ESO to educationusa@fulbright.es (indicate “Application CCC 2018” in the subject of the email) by April 27, 2018.  All students selected to be members will then be notified in May and invited to an information session with their parents.
