Season’s Greetings everyone! Here in California the college application season (for the most part) just came to an end for seniors. Some seniors might still be applying to private colleges or taking one last SAT or ACT, but for most seniors the heavy lifting is over and now it’s all about the waiting.
So, to help your IB seniors pass the time until they receive their college decisions in March, encourage them to get involved with a significant CAS activity. An activity that is truly meaningful. An activity with impact!
The IBO wants seniors to be involved in CAS activities for at least 18 months, so this means seniors need to stay involved with their CAS until at least February 2015 (depending on what month your seniors started school their junior year).
So, encourage your seniors to use this time of the year (and even a couple weeks of no school for most) to finish out their CAS program strong with a CAS activity or two or three that is truly meaningful and has a lot of impact.
Have a great holiday season everyone! 🙂
