“Life is the sum of all your choices.”

“Circumstances don’t determine the outcome, your choices do.” Think Ahead Students, and participate actively in the circle of life, knowing that every choice  you make including friends, extracurricular activities, course selection, special programs, financial decisions, post secondary decisions and career choice will all impact what you aim to achieve in the end. Choose wisely, and be mindful! College and scholarship representatives are trained to seek out those students who have the greatest likelihood of succeeding academically and socially at an institution of higher learning and contributing positively to a college community. If you want to give yourself the greatest chance of success, in college and in life, take a holistic approach, which includes academic, social and personal development. Well rounded students are always in demand, so make that your goal:

1) Maintain Academic excellence and consistency
2) Embrace the community around you and seek out community service activities
3) Participate in the school environment, choosing a variety of extracurricular activities
4) Seek out leadership roles/positions, the most impressive addition to any application

Whatever you do, keep your goals in mind…Always! and “Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.”  ~Oprah Winfrey
