Hi,

I know the general advice regarding high school activities is to only use them if we continued to do the activity later.
I attended a health sciences/medical sciences academy in high school which included a lot of introductory premed classes, volunteer work, and some clinical exposure. I also competed in a national health science org and placed at that level/was a state-level leader. I didn't end up continuing with the org through undergrad but only because I felt like I had done all that could be done there after high school.

I was thinking of including all this as one 'activity' on the application. Any advice?

Better to mention them in your PS than listing as an activity.
