When you think about the education your child is getting, what are the most important things to you? Do you worry about the environment they are learning in, the class ratios? Do you worry about sports offerings, extracurriculars? Do you worry about worldview and how it is being impressed upon your child?
Our guess is that all of these make the list when it comes to thinking about education. However, academics probably makes it pretty high on the list. Would you agree? You want to know your child is entering a learning environment that will challenge them when needed, provide extra support when needed and allow a well-rounded experience that prepares them for real world life and encounters. Sound about right?
According to The National Center for Public Policy & Higher Education, “About half of first-year college students discover that, despite excellent GPAs and getting into college, they are not ready for continued studies after high school, according to The National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education. Taking college-prep courses, earning high school diplomas, and passing state high-school exit exams — none of it is sufficient to ensure that these students are actually ready for college work.” (source)
