Message by Prof. Isha Jain

In order to recognize the importance of providing educational activities that enrich and broaden student experiences as an integral part of the curriculum as well as beyond the normal academic day, the Institutional Committee supports the development of co-curricular and extracurricular programs in accordance with the policies established.

Co-curricular programs are defined as those activities that enhance and enrich the regular curriculum during the normal days. Extracurricular programs are defined as those activities that broaden the educational experience which usually take place beyond the normal college day. Students who desire to participate or be the Volunteer shall do so with the understanding that it is a privilege for them to be the member a team. All students are invited to participate and the activities are designed to meet the needs of and to stimulate interests expressed by students and should cover a broad range of abilities. There are equal opportunities for all students to participate in such programs.
Recognizing the positive aspects of co-curricular programs that enrich and enhance the regular elementary college program, the College Committee supports the development of such activities in all areas of the approved curriculum.

Conventional cultural activities, such as band and art class, benefit high school students by bolstering their general commitment to socio-educational goals, such as college attendance. In the case of elite college admissions, on the other hand, exposure to high-status cultural forms would appear to play a strong role, though not in ways that are easily transmitted to students through secondary schools.
