Since Wardell is a 7th grader, the college admissions testing process hasn't quite begun. The one thing I mentioned during this section of the meeting is the fact that College Board has teamed up with Khan Academy in order to make sure that students know the areas they have to strengthen after they take the PSAT.
I challenged Wardell to research three colleges (Christopher Newport University, George Mason University and The College of William and Mary). This inquiry will help him learn important facts such as the location of each school, the number of undergraduate students at each college and which majors the schools have to offer. This exploration project will help guide Wardell as he embarks upon this important season of college exploration.
