High School Choices That Stand Out on College Applications

Studying in high schoolWhen you enroll in a private high school, you can expect to meet with a college counselor to discuss graduation requirements, college admissions and the best paths to meet your educational goals. Carefully planning your coursework during your high school years will help prepare you for higher learning and for your chosen career. A college preparatory school will require you to complete a certain amount of credits in science, mathematics, English and other core subjects. However, you are also allowed some flexibility to make several choices along the way that can help boost your profile for college admissions.

Exploring Academic Tracks
Enrolling in an academic track is an excellent way to make your college application stand out above the rest. Academic tracks vary depending on the school. Depending on your school, you may elect to complete a college-preparatory track during which you can earn college credit in advance. Or, if you are interested in pursuing a degree or career in the fields of science, engineering, technology or applied mathematics, you may choose to complete an academic track in those fields. Completing a challenging science, engineering, technology and applied science track can demonstrate your proficiency in not only the academic aspects of those disciplines, but your proficiency in using those disciplines in solving real-world problems.

Enrolling in an International Baccalaureate Program
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is a rigorous course of study and its interdisciplinary and global curriculum is recognized and respected by some of the world’s leading universities. Completing the IB Diploma program will certainly capture the attention of college admissions and demonstrate your depth of knowledge and preparedness for the rigors of higher education.

Completing a Magnet Program
When reviewing college applications, admissions personnel typically look for students who demonstrate a passion for their chosen field, regardless of what that field is. One way to convey that you are keenly interested in an area is by completing a magnet program. Magnet programs are curriculums designed around specific themes and specialized areas of interest, and can be taken completed alongside other academic tracks. Completing a magnet program in pre-law, engineering, computer science or medical studies can go a long way in helping your college application stand out.

Demonstrating Leadership Beyond the Classroom
Although your academic record is certainly important for your college application, admissions committees also look for indicators that you have demonstrated leadership beyond the classroom. Consider a summer internship or a volunteer position in your community. If you choose to write about these enrichment opportunities for your college application essay, you might discuss how they complemented your classes or affected your worldview.

Graduates of Quarry Lane School have been accepted to the most prestigious universities and colleges around the country.
