When parents are looking for that “secret sauce” for college applications, they often have questions about extracurriculars. How many do we need? Are some better than others? What are colleges looking for? (By the way, there is no “secret sauce”-just a well-laid plan that fits your child.) This webinar answers those questions and also goes deeper into how time spent in extracurricular activities can fuel your child’s personal, academic, mental, and social development.
TWO OPTIONS TO WATCH:
- Register and watch live on 3/9/22 (Recommended!)
- Register and watch on your schedule (after the live event)
We will be providing a recording of this webinar to all who register so your family can watch when it fits your schedule. This recording is for the exclusive use of your family and may not be shared. Families watching live have the benefit of asking questions during the program. Those watching on demand can share their quick questions with us via email. This recording will only be available until 3/31/22.
INTENDED AUDIENCE: Parents and Students – Grade 8-11
Join Beth Probst, founder and CEO of At The Core, for valuable insight into:
- Types of extracurriculars
- Why engage in them
- How to make the most of your summer
- How time spent in these activities will support growth
- What colleges are looking for
- Finding a good fit for extracurriculars
- Developing “leadership”
This information is important for every college-bound student to understand as they make choices related to how they use their non-school time. Students seeking admission to highly selective colleges will want to research how their target colleges view extracurriculars and what elements they are most interested in seeing on an application. There is no focused teaching about applying to highly selective colleges in this program.
What do families have to say about our program?
“Even being on our third and last child looking to apply to college in the fall, this was helpful for sure! You always do an amazing job.”
“Absolutely helpful! Took lots of notes!”
“Great content! Thanks for all the info! You guys do a great job!”
Not all questions may be answered during the program due to time constraints. Families with very specific student or situation questions will be better served by our Private Consultation service (in-person in Central Ohio or online nationwide).
