The many benefi ts of
School offers much more than a topnotch
education. Being an engaged
student involves learning lessons
in the classroom but also participating
in the myriad activities that begin once
the dismissal bell has rung.
Participation in extracurricular
activities should be a consideration for
every student because of the vast array
of benefi ts such pursuits provide.
Information published in the Brandon
University Journal of Graduate Studies
in Education indicates that participation
in extracurricular activities
positively correlates with students’
development both academically and
personally. Research shows being involved
in afterschool clubs and sports
promotes greater character development,
improved academic success,
good time-management techniques
and leadership skills, and greater interest
in community involvement.
Every school offers some type of extracurricular
activity — from school
bands to academic clubs to volunteer
groups to sports. The National Center
for Education Statistics says these activities
offer students opportunities to
learn many valuable lessons, including
group responsibility and the value of
competition. Students who participate
in extracurricular activities also can
be exposed to a diverse array of people
and cultures. Some activities also help
students develop their mental and physical
strength. The NCES notes that participation
in extracurricular activities
can foster a strong sense of connection
between students and their schools,
which can reduce the likelihood of
school failures and dropout rates.
Extracurricular activities also are
the gifts that keep on giving, particularly
as they relate to future academic
success. Crimson, an admissions support
company specializing in increasing
acceptance to highly regarded institutions,
says extracurriculars are a
critical part of a student’s university
While people are quick to view extracurriculars
for the academic advantages
they provide, one often overlooked
benefi t is the social benefi ts of these pursuits.
One of the best and easiest ways to
make friends is through extracurricular
