Maximizing School Breaks & Extracurricular Impact
Join us on Tuesday, November 14 at 4:00 PM PST / 7:00 PM EST to discuss ways that students can maximize their time outside of the classroom and during winter and summer break!
About this EventJust as there's no perfect high school schedule, there's no single extracurricular schedule that will stand out to an admissions committee. We'll help you and your teen answer the following questions:
- How should students be spending their high school breaks?
- Does attending a university's pre-college program really help students get in?
- What programs (if any) are worth spending your money on?
College Counselor, Yale Graduate, and DEI Director
Christopher is pretty good at winning. They’re a champion ballroom dancer, National Merit Scholar, and two-time recipient of Yale’s Light Fellowship. If we include high school, there are about a million debate trophies, Science Fair Awards, National History Day awards, and statewide essay competition victories added to the list. In their free time, Christopher goes to a competitive spin studio, where they’ve only met one person who can (sometimes) beat them. And did we mention they speak French, Spanish, and Korean?
