The COVID-19 outbreak has interrupted our daily routines drastically. We recognize these unfortunate times are overwhelming for school counselors and educators, and especially for those students considering a college education in the near future.
That’s why we want you to know about a free, online college guide from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) called What Will They Learn?® This unique resource evaluates an institution’s commitment to teaching the skills and knowledge that will prepare students for successful careers. We present this information alongside tuition and graduation rates so that families can find schools close to home that are dedicated to student success and responsible stewardship of tuition dollars.
What Will They Learn?® assesses the general education programs at over 1,100 four-year colleges and universities in America. Schools are graded on an “A” through “F” scale based on whether they require college-level courses in seven core subject areas: Composition, Literature, Foreign Language (intermediate-level), U.S. Government or History, Economics, Mathematics, and Natural Science.
WhatWillTheyLearn.com makes it possible for school counselors to compare the cost of attendance, four-year graduation rates, and curricular quality across customized comparison groups by bringing the information together on an easy-to-navigate website.
We hope you will join us for a short webinar discussing the resources available at WhatWillTheyLearn.com. We encourage interested parents and students to join us as well. Currently, we have two dates open for registration.
