should i include classes i have taken on my resume?

I am currently working on my application for Georgetown and in the section for listing extra-curriculars, there is an option to submit a resume. I have never made a resume for myself, but I kind of need it for this app and other things too. I was wondering if I should list classes i have taken in high school. But what classes? I cant put all of them since thats way too many. Most resumes have "relevant" classes listed. Would classes related to my intended major be considered relevant? Or should I just list my favorite/most challenging classes? Thanks!

I would suggest that classes that relate to your major are the best way to go. In the workforce, when you apply to a position, you list classes that are going to be helpful to you in that position and will make you stand out from others who might not have taken that class.

That is covered on your high school transcript that you/counselor will submit and that will show all classes you have taken.

Most schools submit a class catalog detailing classes available and school statistics
