Whether it’s from finding research projects or internships, preparing for math or science contests, forming clubs or non-profit organizations, or of course, preparing for the rapidly approaching SAT/ACT/SAT2/AP tests, you start (or maybe continue) to feel the pressure of reaching one of those distant, “glorious” Ivy League schools.

If you have already overcome the hurdles of junior year, the description above may sound strikingly familiar to you. If you have not yet reached that point, you may be feeling like buckling up for the ride ahead. This seminar can help anyone from middle to high school.

Speaker: Joey Hong is a recent graduate of The King’s Academy–a small private Christian school, and an incoming freshman at Caltech. If you were to skim through his college application, you would find that his high school experience was actually quite different from that of public school students.

Activities: The King’s Academy is unlike the notable public schools of Lynbrook, Monta Vista, and others around here, and therefore, he was raised in a very different academic environment. These are several things that he did in high school:

  • Founder of school’s math club and physics club
  • Participant in math and physics competitions
  • Volunteer work in math and programming instruction
  • Web-development  intern
  • Independent STEM research project

High School Reflection: How does your high school environment affect the college application experience? Can you have a successful college process without overwhelming yourself with stress? These are questions Joey can answer without hesitation.

  • High School is about discovering yourself, NOT molding yourself into the perfect college applicant.
  • You can get into college WITHOUT fixating on finding the perfect extracurricular activities.
  • You DON’T need to sacrifice all balance and fun for academic achievement.

In the presentation, he will be covering my own high school journey, and analyzing the things he did to get me to this point. he will discuss the impact of my school and how it made the college application process different. Furthermore, he will also be going over the things he believe he should have done differently.


宾夕法尼亚大学(University of Pennsylvania )是一所著名的私立研究型大学,八所常青藤盟校之一。她有哪些特点?她的文化,核心理念,院系专业特点?她的大学招生标准?怎样可以有效申请?
