Online school extracurriculars
Answered

Hello everyone

I am reading up on advice about extra curriculars while in high school.

I am just wondering how do I put all these suggestions into consideration when I don't have these opportunities as I am in an online school.

Any suggestions?

Hey! I understand, there are definitely opportunities for you even in online school. You can apply for volunteering and earn many hours. You can always join swimming, or dancing class if you're interested. You can always continue these activates if you decide go to school in person, it will follow you in your transcript. Since you're in online school, I would suggest trying our different activities and continuing the ones you enjoy. Good Luck!

Hello! Fellow virtual student here, and I understand completely. As a virtual student, there's no hope of relying on many school related clubs or extracurriculars to help bolster your admissions resume. Keep an eye out for out of school opportunities like job shadowing, summer programs by your state/county, internships, and volunteering. I suggest searching for virtual programs in your state, from volunteering to programs involving careers you are interested in, by national, state and county run programs/organizations especially. So my advice is to apply for programs that aren't run by your school, reach out to outside organizations, and if you can't find many opportunities, try your best to make your own.
