Participation in activities outside of the classroom can reveal a student’s passion and values and give more details about the student, in ways grades and test scores cannot. Most college applications will ask students about their extracurricular activities so it is important that students start to build a CV (or résumé) to showcase their interests and achievements.

Many summer learning opportunities are brought to our attention throughout the course of the year. We do not endorse specific opportunities, but list them only as a resource.
