What is the EducationUSA Competitive College Club?
The EducationUSA Competitive College Club (CCC) is an intensive group advising program that assists top high school students who want to be competitive applicants to U.S. colleges and universities. Students meet year-round and participate in lectures, book clubs, community service activities, cross-cultural exercises and test preparation. The activities help ensure that students are properly advised as they go through the process of preparing themselves both academically and socially for a U.S. college or university, and work to determine which schools might be a good.
Who can join?
Participation is open to high school students who are in the top 10% of their class (seniors must join by June before the last school year). The only other requirement is commitment. Students must attend all meetings, held bi-weekly during the school year and weekly during the summer. The CCC is open to all students in a city/town of any nationality, ethnicity, and economic background. CCC does not limit the number of members and students can join at any time, right up until applications are due.
What do CCC participants do?
The EducationUSA CCC involves a number of activities, including bi-weekly meetings during the school year (weekly during the summer), community service activities, book club, movie nights, study groups and more. From the beginning, students prepare for standardized tests as these provide a U.S. college or university with a quantitative measure to back up the student’s school grades.
What age should CCC students be?
High school students who are sophomores and juniors.
Application is now open until January 31 2017!
