Freshman Focus Classes
Each quarter, Freshman Focus students participate in a two-day workshop in which they learn more about Wando Schools of Study and various opportunities available to Wando students. We talk about what it means to be a "well-rounded" student, and explore several ways to get involved at Wando.
Students are shown how to use SCOIS.net to learn more about how their interests relate to careers, the Sixteen Career Clusters, college admissions criteria, and much more. Students then engage in a Career Research Project in the computer lab.

Juniors - PSAT Review Sessions
During the first two weeks of February, all juniors were invited to attend a thirty-minute workshop on how to read PSAT results and how to use College Board's "My College Quick Start" tool. The personalized study tools are based on how students responded to each item on the PSAT and can be used to identify specific areas of concern. Students were shown how they can best spend their time preparing for the SAT, as well as how to find and interpret their individualized AP Potential Report.
The second half of the workshop was spent identifying college admissions data through SCOIS.net (login information below). Students were shown how to look up and run a side-by-side comparison of factors each college considers when evaluating applicants including average SAT & ACT scores, GPA, along with other criteria, and the reported value placed upon these factors for colleges in the US.
