Great question! I'm not sure where you are in high school or what year, but how I got myself into college was getting involved on campus. This can range from clubs on campus, volunteering, sports and other extra curricular activities. I personally was heavily involved in sports (soccer, cross country, swimming), band, theater, band, and Key Club. There are so many options to choose from depending on your interests and passions. Volunteering is definitely something that will benefit your application as well, even if it is just on your own time.
