Co-Curriculars & Activities

Appleton Area School District encourages our students to participate in co-curriculars at every grade level. Not only these activities a great way to connect with classmates and get involved in the community, but they also develop lifelong skills such as teamwork and time management, which are essential for future success.

A Real Plus for Students

It used to be that co-curriculars were a nice extra. While participation is still optional, co-curriculars are becoming more important than ever. That’s because admissions criteria for post-secondary schools keeps evolving – it’s not just GPA and ACT/SAT test scores that matter anymore. It’s also about learning beyond the classroom. Colleges are placing emphasis on how involved students are outside class and in the community. Employers are also considering the value co-curriculars have in providing real-world experience and the leadership potential they give graduates who are entering the workforce.

A World of Opportunity

Co-curriculars are more than just after-school sports. The range of activities offered is pretty phenomenal and allows students at every level to pursue just about anything they are interested in or passionate about – from languages to music to technology.
