It is important to have a wide variety of extracurricular activities to showcase on your college applications. Extracurriculars let you explore your interests and discover your passions while also getting you involved with your AHS community and giving you the opportunity to make friends.
High school clubs are great examples of extracurriculars you can join. When you enter AHS, you may have some clubs already in mind that you want to join, and you should definitely check them out and join if you like it. However, don’t be afraid to branch out when you’re finding high school clubs to get involved in. You may accidentally discover a passion or a talent that you didn’t even know you had.
If you have a specific passion or interest that isn’t represented through a club at AHS, you might consider starting the club! By starting your club, you’ll be bringing a new perspective or skill to our high school community while showing passion and initiative for your college applications.
