What extracurricular activities should I do in order to make my application to clemson stand out?

I go to a charter school so we have limited activities to choose from. I’m a rising sophomore and I want to make sure that I get into clemson (my dream college).

Colleges will know you attend a charter school, and there will be a space on the college application to explain anything like this. So use that space to explain that the charter school you attend has a limited number of activities you can choose from.

As for outside of school extracurriculars you could do, check for any local organizations in your local area that peak your interest and see if there are any volunteering opportunities you could participate in. You could also start a club at your school, see if there's any in person or online volunteering you could do, or whatever else is accessible to you and peaks your interest.
