Why Be Involved in High School? Part IV – Building Your College Resume

September 6th, 2018 by
Our Previous Articles demonstrated why it is important to be involved in high school.  Colleges are looking for high school students who are involved in extracurricular activities.  They want students who have a proven track record of maintaining good grades while managing their time well with a variety of activities.  It is also important to be proactive in your involvement early in high school; knowing what to be involved in and to what level you should involve yourself in these things.  There is also a need to understand the balance between quantity and quality of outside activities.  What should you be involved with?  How many activities do I need to do?  How involved should I be with these activities, etc.

Capstone can help you highlight your involvement.  We can help you build a resume which will help emphasize your strengths and show your involvement outside of the classroom, which in turn can increase your opportunities in the college admissions process.
