Final results from the 2012 Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) for the graduating class have been tabulated at the Christian Academy. Ten seniors were tested and the average scores were: Reading – 505, Math – 473, and Writing – 496. The combined total for the 2012 school year was 1474, which was slightly above the overall state average of 1452.
The 2012 score reflected a 52-point increase over the previous year. ACA seniors have steadily improved in their testing taking skills and score results. Students at ACA have shown a significant point increase in the past two school years. Since 2010, there has been an increase of 114 points. School officials sight improved methods of preparing students for the college-bound testing program, more rigid classroom requirements, and more student awareness of the need to score well on the test as possible reasons for the steady increase in SAT scores.
Historically, ACA has a very high percentage of its graduating seniors (above 90%) attending colleges and universities. In addition, it has been noted that the success rate of ACA graduates in college-level courses is very high.
