Extra Curricular

The importance of extracurricular activities at schools & colleges is well established. The primary goals of extracurricular activities focus on the individual student level, the institutional level, and the broader community level. These activities exist to complement the institution's academic curriculum and to enhance the student's educational experience. Research clearly shows that almost any type of student involvement in school and college positively affects student learning and development. Extracurricular activities provide a setting to become involved and to interact with other students, thus leading to increased learning and enhanced development. Specifically, a student's peer group is the most important source of influence on a student's academic and personal development. By identifying with a peer group, that group may influence a student's cognitive development as well as his or her behavior.

Student involvement in extracurricular activities also positively impacts educational attainment. Research indicates that extracurricular involvement has a positive impact on attaining a college degree and on educational aspirations. Students who are actively engaged are more likely to have higher educational ambitions than uninvolved students.
