Learning More About the World's Religions

Growing up, I was taught all there is to know about Christianity, but my family didn't put a lot of emphasis in trying to get to know the religions of other people from around the world. As a result, I had a lot of questions once I became an adult and started to do some traveling. I found myself visiting different churches and places of worship to get answers, and most of what I learned was simply fascinating. Today, I enjoy helping others understand the differences and similarities between various religions because I feel that it brings us closer together as humans. So I started this blog to provide insight and information about some of the most notorious religions of all time. I hope you enjoy what you find here!

Ivy League Aspirations? Prepare Now By Enrolling In A College Prep High School

Deanna Peterson

Everyone knows that obtaining a college degree is important when it comes to maximizing financial success. For some people it's not just a college degree that matters, it's where the degree comes from that is most important.

Ivy League universities are often thought of as being the most prestigious and selective in the nation. If you are dreaming of attending Harvard, Yale, or any of the other prominent Ivy League schools after you graduate, you should enroll in a college-prep high school to improve your chances of successful college admission.

Classroom Environment

The classroom environment in a private school can better prepare you for the rigors of an Ivy League education. Private schools tend to have smaller class sizes, which allow instructors to give students the individual attention needed for accelerated learning.

Private schools also have the resources available to pay their instructors a competitive wage. This means that you will have access to the most educated and qualified teachers throughout your high school years.

By creating a classroom environment that fosters advanced learning, a private school can help prepare students for success in a prestigious learning institution in the future.

Extracurricular Opportunities

Competitive colleges are looking for more than just good grades when evaluating applications for admission. Well-rounded and diverse individuals can add to the culture and knowledge base of a university campus.

Ivy League schools will often look closely at your extracurricular activities when evaluating your suitability for admission. College prep high schools understand the need for plentiful and diverse extracurricular activities on college applications, and they provide opportunities for students to participate in many ways.

You will find more art programs, language clubs, math and science clubs, and social clubs at a private school than you would at a public school. Access to these opportunities will allow you to enrich your college application and make yourself more attractive to Ivy League admissions committees.

Social Networking

The old adage "It's not what you know, it's who you know" holds true in many situations. Attending a college prep high school will give you the opportunity to network with some of the most successful people in your area.

Many former private school graduates are Ivy League graduates as well. You can network with these individuals through alumni mixers and mentor programs set up by your school. A letter of recommendation from a prominent and successful Ivy League graduate can help your application stand out when you apply to colleges in the future.
