Why Should I Participate in ACT-SO?

As a high school student bombarded with homework, projects, clubs, sports, and more, the last thing you want to do is add another activity to your list. On the other hand, you may be a student who isn't really involved because you just can’t seem to find an activity that interests you. 

Either way, ACT-SO is a program that you can’t do without. We will provide you with the tools to help you increase your confidence, achieve your goals, and become a success. 


At ACT-SO meetings and workshops, we will teach you how to successfully compete against your counterparts by inspiring you to do your absolute best, teaching you the importance of preparation and presentation. ACT-SO pushes you need to reach your maximum potential.



Unlike other extracurricular activities, ACT-SO provides you the opportunity to showcase your talents in a variety of fields including performing arts, visual arts, sciences, humanities, and business.

ACT-SO will also provide you with mentors that share your interest, who will provide you with the counsel and advice needed for you to reach your goals.

​If you’re still not convinced, here are the top 5 reasons why you should join ACT-SO:

  1. You get to meet and compete against talented     students from across the country.
  2. We teach you real “life lessons” that will help you succeed in both the classroom and life.
  3. You can win cash prizes and a brand new laptop.
  4. It will look great on your college resume.
  5. We’re not just another boring activity. We actually have fun.
YOUR SUCCESS...  Depends on your next steps
