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.
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 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.
