What About High School?
Short answer - do not include.
- Don't include high school in the education section of your resume, as a college student, it is understood that you completed high school.
- Exceptional activities and honors from high school might be included in the Activities and Honors section IF
- the honor is one that very few receive (i.e., valedictorian, Eagle Scout, etc.) or
- the award shows an early interest in your career field.
- IF YOU ARE A FRESHMAN, it is okay to include more HS activities - but get involved on campus so that you can drop these ASAP!
