College Counseling

Enrichment And Leadership

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an enrichment activity and a leadership activity?

Enrichment activities are programs available that will introduce you to a profession or skill, or boost your academic skills in an area you need help or an area you’d like to explore.

Leadership activities often involve taking a leadership role in an organized activity or learning how to become a leader. These could range from  camp leader opportunities to joining a board or committee focused on a subject.  Leadership activities are a good item to add to your college resume.

As BCHS receives these activites, we will post them on this page. If you have something in mind, contact your school counselor and she will be able to help you find a program.

Should I consider a summer program?

BCHS receives an amazing number of summer program information from colleges and other organizations.  These programs may revolve around a career or field of study and are also a good way to explore a college you might be interested in.  These often have a cost, but some can be found that are not so expensive.

If you have a specific interest, contact the BCHS school counselors to see what information they have.  Or, look on the college website to find what your college of interest is offering.

Registration for these programs often opens in early spring, with late spring deadlines, so plan ahead.
