NATURE AND ITS BACKGROUND

 Introduction

The way children choose to spend their free time can affect their school performance; it is not simply traditional in- class instruction that affect academic achievement (Stephen & Schaben, 2002).

The development of extracurricular activities was slow in the beginning, with many seeing it simply as a fad that would pass and quickly fade out of style (Milliard, 1930). Many extracurricular activities have proven to be beneficial in building and strengthening academic achievement, even if the activities are not obviously related to academic subjects (Marsh & Kleitman, 2002).

The problems of our research are to know the effects of extracurricular activities on academic performance and what extracurricular activities affect their academic performance. There is a need to conduct this study so that we will be able to know the impacts in the Senior High School students because as we know there are students who failed in class and students who excel in class for being involved in extracurricular activities either inside or outside the campus of Southern Christian College.

Statement of the Problem

The purpose of the study will seek answers to these following questions:

  1. What is the demographic profile of the respondents?

Objectives of the Study

This study aims to determine the various effects of extracurricular activities they participated in the school and at the same time to identify the top 3 extracurricular activities they participated.

Academic Performance

According to IGI Global (2017), academic performance is defined by students’ reporting of past semester CGPA/GPA and their expected GPA for the current semester. The GPA is better measurement because it provides a greater insight into the relative level of performance of individuals and different group of students.

The influence of parent involvement on academic success had not only been noted among researchers, but also among policy makers who have integrated efforts aimed at increasing parent involvement into broader educational policy initiative.

Extracurricular Activities

Allowing your child to get involved in extracurricular activities, these activities a school is a wise choice and it can be very important in helping them to develop many working skills, people skills and more.

Nemours Organization (2001) stated that the participating in extracurricular activities helps you in other ways. It looks good on job applications and shows admission officers and employers you’re well-rounded and responsible.

Brenzel (2017) emphasized that extracurricular also play a part when you apply to colleges. Most college applications ask about your activities. That

Importance of Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities allow students to develop leadership, create lasting friendships, give back to their community, give back to their community, belong to their community, belong to the school family, and find success outside of the classroom. Extracurricular activities can enhance a student’s life, and they can give the students additional skills that they will use for the remainder of their lives.

Impact on Students’ Achievement

The impact that participation in extracurricular activities has on student achievement has been debated for several years. According to Eccles and Barber (1999), adolescents who are involved in extracurricular activities achieve at higher rates than children who are not involve in activities.

A study conducted by Hass (2004), activities Director at Ogilvie High School, concluded that participation in extracurricular activities did have a positive impact on student achievement. He states that participating in sports socializes adolescents in ways that promotes educational success.
